The first ever Expo Vintage took place this past weekend in Magog, featuring hundreds of historic artifacts and activities, all put on by the Association Patrimoine Estrie.
The three-day-long celebration was planned to bring together a mix of history, customs and old ways of doing things, encompassing the cultural, religious, industrial and agricultural heritage in Eastern Canada.
Around the fair site were dozens of tents all with their own artifacts of times past, from signs to license plates, tools and machines; even a good number of artworks and war memorabilia.
Many local artisans had their work on display and gave live demonstrations for visitors to watch and learn how all the old tools really worked.
