The closing weekend of the Hants County Exhibition was just as fun-filled as the first.
Folks visiting the oldest North American agricultural fair had the opportunity to take in a variety of livestock demonstrations, including horse and oxen pulls, plus a monster truck event, some live tunes and plenty of carnival fun.
On Saturday night, Sept. 20, the highlight at the exhibition was the annual Redneck Olympics and Partner Carrying Competition.
Josh Mulholland, of River John, was the man to beat as he won the previous two partner carrying contests. It was close, but Mulholland, with his partner Candace Arbuckle, of New Glasgow, took home the trophy, bragging rights, and her weight paid out in loonies.
Following the 80.398 second run, Mulholland, now a three time champion, said it has been fun defending his title.
When asked what the key to success is, Mulholland, who plays “a lot of sports” that helps him stay in shape, said it's all about being steady on your feet.
“(Be) very steady; not too fast but steady and try not to fall,” he said.
The 249th exhibition wrapped up Sept. 21.
