Can you believe the Portage Ex has been around for 150 years? Much like many other fairs and festivals, it's been a two-year hiatus for the event, but it's back in a big way this weekend. 

Ray Askin joined us on the morning show to go over some of this year's hi-lites, while several people involved with the Oakville and Portage 4H clubs also made an appearance. You can hear those interviews below.

While the fair officially starts Friday, the Oakville Beef Club Achievement is Thursday at 2 pm while the Portage Beef 4-H Club Achievement will be at 7 pm. The Interclub competitions happen Friday with the Market Steer and Lamb Sale at 4 pm.

Make sure you tune into our stations as we are giving away day passes to the event and reporting live as well as part of Celebrate Summer!
