Despite the sights, sounds and smells of the popular Williamstown Fair, it wasn't enough on Saturday to keep patrons from scurrying for drier conditions when the skies opened up.
Fairgoers were enjoying another fairly successful edition of the oldest such fair in the province when a powerful afternoon thunderstorm drenched anything in sight.
George Lang, a fairgoer, said things were great until the skies opened up.
"People just took off after that," he said. "But we've have been having a good day anyway."
After the storm passed crowds continued to descend on the fairgrounds in Williamstown.
The fair offered rides and agriculutural competitions, not to mention popular live entertainment and food.
