Highlights of the St. Mary Agri Expo
With overnight rain leaving the showground soggy and most of the area muddy or covered by water, exhibitors at the Grey's Inn Sports Complex pretty much had the place to themselves for the 26th staging of the annual St Mary Agri Expo on Easter Monday. Persistent showers throughout the day forced those in attendance to get creative in navigating the showground, resorting to water boots or plastic bags.
The going was as rough for vehicles as well with trucks getting stuck. And while the number of small ruminants was less than previous years, the sheep and goat especially were of a high standard, with the lone bull on display in the livestock section making for a poor showing in the second straight year.
Here are some pictorial highlights from the rain-affected event which still managed to pull patrons from as far as Kingston and St Andrew, including Governor General Sir Patrick Allen and Lady Allen, who turned up to boot.
