Tri-County Vanguard - - NEWS - CARLA ALLEN THE­VAN­GUARD.CA

The Yarmouth Spring Liv­ing Show drew 2,300 guests through the Mariners Cen­tre doors over the May 4-6 week­end.

This was the third year for the event, which is or­ga­nized by Mile East Pro­duc­tions, owned by Rick All­right and Candice Phibbs.

There were 67 ex­hibitors in this year’s show. Many have al­ready given the or­ga­niz­ers “great feed­back,” says Phibbs.

“They had a won­der­ful sales week­end,” she said.

All­wright says the show went “great” and seems to get less stress­ful every year.

Next year’s show is sched­uled for May 3-5.

“Every­one seems up for do­ing it again,” All­wright said.

Talks are un­der­way with the Mariners Cen­tre about adding a sec­tion with lo­cal beer/wine and spir­its pro­duc­ers pro­mot­ing sam­pling. “We feel it would be a great ad­di­tion to the show,” said All­wright.

Or­ga­niz­ers also hope to find an RV dealer in­ter­ested in par­tic­i­pat­ing next year.

“Some guests ex­pressed dis­ap­point­ment that no RVs were on-site, but it was sim­ply the case that there wasn’t a dealer able to make it this year,” said All­wright.

He added that com­mu­nity sup­port for the event has been “fan­tas­tic.”

“We will con­tinue to work to ex­pand the of­fer­ing fur­ther,” he said.
