  Curd Fest draws record numbers

ST. ALBERT -- The St. Albert Curd Festival, organized by the St. Albert Cheese Factory, hosted its first festival with the new factory, and welcomed between 40,000 and 50,000 guests, more attendees than in the event's history.

A large part of the attraction was the world record-setting threshing machine challenge, which brought antique and agriculture enthusiasts from across Canada (see story page 5).

The event had several entertainers including headliner Lise Dion, many children's activities, a corn maze, wine and cheese tasting, costumed historical interpreters, and the intervillage challenge. For the first time, St. Albert won the challenge, beating Limoges, Dunvegan, Crysler, Casselman, and Embrun, in extreme heat and humidity.

Winners of the school scarecrow competition were Ecole Ste. Euphemie of Casselman -- first prize $1,000, L'├ęcole des Pionniers -- second prize of $500, and Ecole St. Joseph of Russell -- third prize of $250.

The moto-run raised $5,000 for the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario.
