Family and friends of the Filipino Journal were treated to exceptional weather on the final day of the Red River Ex. CEO Garth Rogerson welcomed several new immigrants to the Red River Ex and presented the kids (and some kids at heart) with stuff toy animals to kick off their midway experience.
On the final Sunday of the 10-day exhibition, blue skies and a blazing sun brought smiles to everyone especially Red River Ex management. Despite the rain days, over 200,000 people visited the Ex with 38,000 on the final day, which included a record number of 17,000 walk-up customers.
According to new plans to increase capacity and improve access, Rogerson is confident that the Red River Ex could double attendance in 2015.
