The Gilbert Plains - Grandview Agricultural Society Fair and Rodeo starts today.

This year’s fair features the Manitoba Chuck and Chariot Association which means there will be more races than in years previous.

Marsha Boese with the GP-GV Ag Society says that the weekend promises to be entertaining for the whole family. There will be bouncy castles and a petting zoo for the kids, and beer gardens for the adults.

People can also experience the excitement of the rodeo with bull riding, barrel racing, and steer wrestling. 


The fan favourite Party in the Dirt takes place Saturday night with the Cameron Campbell Band.

There will also be lawnmower races today and Sunday.

The fair and rodeo kicks off with the parade at 3:00 pm. As well, the Al Morning Show is live from Gilbert Plains this morning starting at 8.
