This year’s Red River Ex drew in more than 195,000 people to the midway and other site attractions.

“Wow, was it a scorcher! Snow cone sales hit record levels,” said Garth Rogerson, CEO, Red River Exhibition Association.

“Who would have thought that we would have had so many hot days in a row? Sometimes too much heat, like too much rain, will keep people away… but when all was said and done, the community support we saw this year was incredible!”

The 67th annual Red River Ex also saw the $2,000 grand prize of the Starbound Youth Talent contest awarded to Meaghan Moloney.

Next year’s Red River is June 14-23, 2019.
