In the lead up to the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair (RAWF) that kicks off this weekend, Ben, the fair’s Ambassador, took to the rails to spread the news of the event’s impending kick-off and to make his way to where all the action will be.
We’re not horsing around…but a mini horse called Lil’ Ben will be riding LSW on Monday to celebrate the opening of @THERAWF (there is no truth to the rumour he’s named after a certain @TorontoStar transportation reporter) @GOtransit pic.twitter.com/rWOoSwB3rs— Anne Marie Aikins (@AMAwithAMA) October 25, 2019
Commuters posed for selfies and offered some snuggles as Ben calmly took in the sites and sounds of the big city on his journey to Exhibition Place where he will preside over the largest indoor agricultural fair in the world.
Well given that our ?@GOtransit? Customers were so delighted with Dash & our K9 program we have decided to start a Mounted Unit!— Bill Grodzinski (@GOgrodzinski301) October 28, 2019
Actually it is even more exciting news then that, it’s Little Ben riding our train to get to the ?@THERAWF? opening. Now that’s exciting! pic.twitter.com/ZNXU6wuj0U
In its 97th year, the Royal is known for its equestrian spectacle, The Royal Horse Show, and for its celebration of food, agriculture, livestock and horsemanship and it attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors annually.
L’il Ben and many other furry farm friends will be hanging around the fair which runs from Nov. 1 to 10 at Exhibition Place.
