Pole climbers remain one of Acadian Festival’s most popular attractions
ABRAM-VILLAGE – Aug. 12, 2016 – The pole climbing show, still one of the most popular attractions at the Evangeline Area Agricultural Exhibition and Acadian Festival, will entertain and amaze visitors and locals alike again this summer.
Gerry Arsenault, his son Jeremy and his brother Marcel are busily preparing another fantastic show of aerial comedy and acrobatics that they’ll present at the festival, in Abram-Village, Saturday, Sept. 3, at 1 p.m. and Sunday, Sept. 4, at 2:30 p.m.
Audiences can expect the trio to swing back and forth on ropes between the tall poles, to perform acrobatic stunts, to use chain saws up in the chair, to chase each other around, to wrestle and to dance atop the 100-foot-pole to the sounds of “Cotton Eye Joe”. And of course, there will be surprises galore!
Last year, they had set up an aerial obstacle course between four new poles to allow a number of brave competitors to prove their agility and skills. The competition is expected to continue again this year.
Gerry, Jeremy and Marcel are all professionals from the forestry industry and employees of The Branch Manager and Deva Forestry.
This show is included in the general admission of the fair grounds Saturday and Sunday.
CUTLINE: Even though he’s well into his 60s, Gerry Arsenault maintains his physical agility and continues to present his extremely popular pole-climbing show at the Evangeline Area Agricultural Exhibition and Acadian Festival. His shows will take place Saturday, Sept. 3, at 1 p.m. and Sunday, Sept. 4, at 2:30 p.m.
