The province has announced $50,000 for facility upgrades ahead of the annual Hants County Exhibition.

The one-time funding to the Windsor Agricultural Society will be used to replace two sprinkler systems in the Industrial Building on the exhibition grounds.

Society President Ryan Knowles says this funding is very important to the continued growth and improvement of the grounds and shows government's continued support of local agriculture.

Municipal Affairs Minister Chuck Porter says, "This investment will ensure full use of the main building during this important event."

The Hants County Exhibition is recognized as the oldest agricultural fair in North America with the 254th Exhibition taking place this September in Windsor.
