It was all smiles as farmers, families, agricultural industry representatives and tourists came from far and wide to the Mid West last week for the McIntosh and Son Mingenew Midwest Expo.More than 4000 came through the gates over the two days for the highly anticipated event, which was cancelled last year because of COVID-19. Visitors perused machinery displays and got to meet people working across the State in the agricultural sector, as well as browse stalls selling homemade produce, gifts and artwork.The main stage was a hit, with fashion shows, guest speakers and the Paddock to Plate sessions drawing crowds throughout the days.Pictured are Lara and Craig Harris, with their children Bodhi, 2, Mylah, 6, and Carter, 5, of Geraldton.
