Yarmouth’s Spring Living Show big success
Plans already underway for 2019
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.
Exhibitors were in full display mode Friday night at the Spring Living Show.
Jackie Bezanson and Bram deHeus from Blomidon Nurseries in Wolfville had a display at the show.
Boots full of hens and chicks were part of the West Pubnico and Area garden club’s booth.
