2012 INTERNATIONAL PLOWING MATCH!

During this past week, many thousands of people, all ages, visited Waterloo Region in Ontario to attend the 2012 International Plowing Match .

This annual event covers acres of farmland for several days to showcase plowing talents plus a whole host of rural activities and products.

There was an intermittent occurrence of rain, but overall, the Match was a success, a chance for rural urban interchanges. Looking back at antique machinery, seeing beautiful Belgian horses in the field, colourful gourds and all sorts of agricultural goods on display made for a fun day. Walking the fields from tent to tent on a sunny autumn day just came as an added bonus.

Next year, if the International Plowing Match is in your area, check it out!
