More than 200,000 people took in the sights and sounds of the Queen City Ex this year, according to Evraz Place officials.
202,796 people passed through the gates between Wednesday and Sunday, Regina Exhibition Association Limited said in a media release on Tuesday. That’s slightly down from the 208,267 people that attended the fair in 2016.
“The week started off with some rainy weather and the threat of a few storms, but that didn’t seem to stop our fairgoers from coming out to experience the fun,” Evraz Place events manager Chelsea Galloway said in a release. “The warm and sunny weather decided to stay for the rest of the week, and we were really pleased to see such a strong attendance throughout the whole event.”
In addition to the rides and concerts at the Ex, the seventh annual Flip for Hunger pancake breakfast on Sunday brought in a record-breaking 23,980 pounds of food for the Regina Food Bank.
