IPE Hopes to Set New Record
The 118th Interior Provincial Exhibition kicks off Wednesday in Armstrong.

She says if you've never been to a farm, this is a great way to learn about agriculture. One big change this year is the rodeo is starting an hour early at 7pm.
Paulson says there's a lot of new entertainment and the fair is very family friendly.
Paulson says with the amazing forecast they could set a new attendance record. She hopes to beat 2010's 159-thousand people. The fair runs till Sunday, Sept 2nd.
