Peu de gens ont pu ré­sis­ter au dé­fi du tau­reau mé­ca­nique à la foire agri­cole de Ri­ce­ville et An­neke Cham­bers d’Em­brun a re­le­vé le dé­fi. « Nous vou­lons que la foire soit une ac­ti­vi­té à la­quelle les gens peuvent par­ti­ci­per et pas seule­ment re­gar­der », a dé­cla­ré Co­ri­na Sharp, pré­si­dente de la Ri­ce­ville Agri­cul­tu­ral So­cie­ty. La foire de trois jours du wee­kend du 25 août met­tait en ve­dette des ex­po­si­tions tra­di­tion­nelles de fruits et de pro­duits lo­caux, ain­si que des dé­mons­tra­tions de ta­lents équestres, des spec­tacles de mu­sique coun­try en di­rect, le dé­fi des pom­piers et d’autres ac­ti­vi­tés amu­santes.
