The CKNL Trade Show drew about 12 thousand people again this year to the new Enerplex venue.
Show manager Gene Daniel says, "That’s pretty much the same as it has been the past few years"…and, there were many favorable comments about having the event being staged under one roof.
The 38th annual show, the largest ever in Fort St. John, featured more than 250 displays and exhibits.
It took place during what has to date been the warmest weekend of the year, with record high temperatures for mid-April.
However, Mr. Daniel believes that may have kept attendance down, with many people taking advantage of the summertime like conditions to plan and attend outdoor activities.
