Agassiz fall fair fun starts Friday night

Fireworks, goat milking and 4H offers fun for whole family

Jeff Bodner will perform his Essence of Elvis stage show at the Agassiz Fall Fair on Sept. 13.

The community’s number one event is finally here.

The 110th Annual Agassiz Fall Fair and 66th Corn Festival kicks off on Friday night, with beer gardens, entertainment, a sneak peak at the exhibits, and of course, the midway rides.

The midway will start early this year, Victoria Brookes said, opening their rides up at noon on Friday. The operator made the decision to open early because families will be able to arrive early, due to the school strike.

The agricultural hall will open at 4 p.m., and this year’s beer gardens will open at 6 p.m. Entertainment on stage will also start at 6 p.m. on Friday, with the mesmerizing comedic hypnotist Lee Dyson.

His show, Magic of the Mind, includes a chance to go on stage and be hypnotized along with a larger group. The results are always hilarious, but participants will not remember the experience, so remember to bring a friend and a camera to record the fun.

Following Dyson will be Agassiz’s own Adam Briscoe, a young musician who has been performing on stage at the fair since his days as a student at AESS.

Finally, this year also includes a special fireworks show, starting at 9 p.m.

Saturday promises to be full of entertainment as well, with a full lineup of 4H competitions, the annual parade, stage show and crowning of the Corn King or Queen, and the contest for the coveted goat milking award.

Miss Fraser Valley, Brittany O’Rourke will also be attending the fall fair. O’Rourke is from Mission, and has been busy traveling around the Fraser Valley attending events since she was crowned earlier this year.
