Mother Nature delivered the rain the Comox Valley has needed all summer, but it happened to be right during the Comox Valley Exhibition.

But CVEX board of directors member Mike Trimble says that didn’t drive people away from the event, especially during Saturday’s heavy downpour.

Trimble says he hopes one of the most popular events, Dock-Dogs can make a return next season.

This year marked the Exhibition’s 141st anniversary. Trimble says he sees the fair continuing to be successful for many years to come.
