PNE 2013 is almost here!

PNEThis weekend marks the start of the 2013 Pacific National Exhibition, running August 17 – September 2nd (excluding Aug 19 & 26), The Fair has been an annual rite of summer for over a century in Vancouver.

First conceived as a way to bring the country to the city, the PNE has a long tradition of entertaining Vancouverites and all British Columbians.  Constantly evolving over the decades to keep up with changing tastes and times, agriculture is still at its core but each year more and more entertainment and activities welcome the masses. New this year is Genghis Khan: The Exhibition, Dueling Pianos, and RCMP Musical Ride. Returning are Summer Night Concerts,  Family Feud Live, Peking Acrobats, plus the perennial favourites Superdogs and PNE Prize Home.  Agriculture is represented at Safeway Farm Country, Pacific Spirit Horse Show, Farm Producers Competition, plus  the 4-H Festival (which as an alumni, holds a special place in my memories).
