Donald McVittie reports that Georgian Bay Show was held on Civic Holiday Weekend at Cookstown, Ontario with good weather and attendance. Many of the tractors, engines, cars etc. made their first appearance at this show. There were over 100 gas engines at the show, all of which were well restored.
The Horse Pull drew the attention of a lot of horse fans. The Slow Tractor Race again attracted many spectators during each morning of the show. The Parade took about an hour, and vendors reported a successful weekend.
