Weather favoured the Brome Fair this year, with only brief periods of intense rain, and attendance was 40,000, up 5,000 from last year.

The heavy horses were a crowd pleaser, as the giant Belgian, Clydesdale, Percheron and Friesian draft horses pulled wagons into the main ring. There were six- horse teams, with their twenty-four plate-sized hooves shaking the ground as they passed, along with four-horse and two-horse teams.

The Brome Fair attracted more heavy horses than ever, as the event was a sanctioned provincial show, and winners were awarded not just trophies and money, but also points needed to compete in other such events as the Royal Winter Fair in Toronto.
