Up west, where the fun be­gins

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - A THOUSAND WORDS -

A 1906 Ford Model A turned a lot of heads, in­clud­ing the judges, dur­ing Satur­day’s Prince County Ex­hi­bi­tion pa­rade in Al­ber­ton, earn­ing Therin and Ruth Smallman the prize for best pre-1950 ve­hi­cle.

A 1963 Stude­baker, en­tered by Garth Wilkie was judged best post-1950 an­tique.

A lit­tle rain fell on the ex­hi­bi­tion Fri­day af­ter­noon, but on Satur­day there was noth­ing but sun­shine and blue skies for pa­rade par­tic­i­pants and the spec­ta­tors who lined the pa­rade route.

The theme of both the 91st an­nual ex­hi­bi­tion and the pa­rade was, “Up West, Where the Fun Be­gins.”

Bloom­field Food­land re­ceived the prize for the float that best de­picted the theme.

Rev. W.J. Phillips Res­i­dence had the best com­mu­nity en­try, and the Maple­wood Manor float was judged best in­sti­tu­tional. The Red Oak Shrine Club was se­lected as best vol­un­teer en­try

The prize for best fam­ily en­try went to the Elms­dale Church of the Nazarene.

Dock Road Fam­ily Farm won two prizes — best agri­cul­ture en­try and best over­all en­try.

A McCormick Deer­ing Far­mall trac­tor en­tered by Lloyd Richard won the prize for best an­tique trac­tor, and the West Prince Tired Iron An­tique Club an­tique equip­ment, en­tered by Alden and Ber­nice Gal­lant, was judged most amus­ing.
