OXFORD With sporadic grey skies and the occasional drizzle, Mother Nature chose to ease up and not rain on the Cumberland County Exhibitions parade.

Just another success amongst many this year, says organizer Andy Carter.

As of last night [Friday] were par for last year, Carter said, making the weekend attendance and revenue a banner year at the Exhibition despite an expected loss after dropping the annual pageant due to a lack of interest.

I know we lost some numbers because of that but we made up for it last night.

Amongst the rides, 4-H displays, crafts, booths and industrial demonstrations, the Exhibition saw a record attendance Friday night with entertainers the Fiddling Landrys, who brought audiences to their feet, Carter said.

More exhibitors were featured in the multi-purpose room this year, Carter said, and the weather, for the most part, has been kind to the annual event. On average, Carter said, each day brought the exhibition close to 1,000 attendees daily throughout the week.
