Vehicles filled the parking spaces along the side of the street for nearly two kilometres, while a police officer directed traffic created by the many visitors to Kooy Brothers Lawn Equipment’s 2008 open house.

Held on Fri., Apr. 4th, the event featured new equipment demos, a barbecue, door prizes, Kubota service school and Ministry of Transportation officials speaking about rules of the road.

The open house is an annual event to celebrate the family-run business that caters to the needs of landscaping contractors, golf courses, municipalities, estate- and homeowners.

Established in 1985, Kooy Brothers carries a wide range of products and offers varied number of services.  Despite the rainy weather, most everyone in attendance enjoyed a barbecue lunch and some amazing prizes. Congratulations go to John Larson who took home this year’s grand prize, a brand new Lawn-Boy commercial mower.
