Bruce Power is continuing its support of the International Plowing Match and Rural Expo as Platinum Sponsor for 2023. The event kicked off September 19th in Bowling Green (ON) in Dufferin County, and runs through September 23rd.
As Platinum Sponsor, Bruce Power led the Bruce Power Opening Parade and Opening Ceremonies and handed out nearly 2,000 of its incredibly popular cowboy hats to MPPs from all parties and the public.
The International Plowing Match and Rural Expo is a five-day celebration of agriculture and rural living. There are plowing competitions, a range of activities for people of all ages, numerous opportunities to learn about agriculture, live entertainment in multiple venues, and hundreds of vendors and exhibitors. The 104-year-old event is a collaborative effort of the Ontario Plowmen’s Association and a local committee of volunteers. The event attracts more than 80,000 visitors and political dignitaries annually.
