The 2003 edition of the Hastings County Farm Show and Plowing Match will be a very special occasion. It will mark the 15th year of the event!
Special activities and events will take place during the two day show to mark the anniversary. This year's show will be hosted by Cooney Farms, near Stirling, Ontario. They also hosted the first Hastings County Farm Show and Plowing Match in 1989. The location is different, but the same owners are involved.
New twists this year
A lot of the same great features are going to take place this year, but there will be some new twists to celebrate the 15th year. The noon ceremonies each day, will honour different aspects of the anniversary. As well, the machinery demos will take a new format which will be revealed closer to show time.
The woodlot section will also have a new event which will be announced later in the summer.
All in all, this year's Hasting County Farm Show and Plowing Match is shaping up to be the best yet, setting the course for another 15 great years.
The dates for this year's show are August 20 and 21 at Cooney Farms, RR 1, Stirling, Ont.
