A pancake breakfast started off activities as visitors piled onto hay wagons for a ride to the day-long event. Live music, face painting, antique tractors and implement demonstrations and a driver’s seat in the County’s new aerial fire truck were offered, along with live and silent auctions, food, entertainment and a vendor’s market.

A PEC versus Quinte West flower arranging contest saw the two municipalities mayors and fire chiefs in battle to create the bouquet bringing the highest funds in auction.

When PEC Mayor Robert Quaiff and Fire Chief Scott Manlow’s arrangements had the County side raising $125, Jane Harrison bid one dollar more on her husband Mayor Jim Harrison’s offering to up the Quinte West side’s total to win at $126.
