LETHBRIDGE, AB – Not even a pandemic seemed to keep people away from Lethbridge’s annual fair this year.
It was a scaled down version of Whoop-Up Days, but it looks like it turned out be a huge success.
The event took place at Exhibition Park for three days, wrapping up on Saturday.
It was the first time Whoop-Up Days was held in over two years because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Exhibition Park’s Chief Executive Officer, Mike Warkentin said on social media that a single-day attendance record was set on Friday and overall it was a great three days.
Admission to the fair this year, by the way, was free.
This was also the first major live event the exhibition has put on in over 18 months.
Wow! Lethbridge, you never cease to amaze me. Yesterday set a single day attendance record only proving people want to come together, eat some food on a stick, feel the thrill of the zipper and just have some wholesome fun. Today is shaping up to be even better! pic.twitter.com/hIOFrPrbO4
