The Pictou Exhibition is getting under way with all of its normal crowd pleasing events, animal displays, 4H displays and events, the horse pull, demolition derby,  ATV events, rides for the kids and strong men/women and horse competitions.

One of the Exhibition’s new events is lawnmower racing which, in its fourth year, is going to get quite a boost with up to a dozen machines coming from Morel, PEI, and the PEI Lawn Tractor Racing Club filling the field with a few locals as well. These lawnmowers can travel up to 50 mph and are sure to put on a show. This will all happen in the outside show ring at 7:15 Friday night under the lights.

If you would like to get involved, bring your ride on mower from home and race in the stock class – you just need to be 12 yrs and older with guardian on-site.
