Photography makes up a large portion of the exhibition each year at the the Agassiz Fall Fair.

Agassiz Fall Fair prize book ready

Families encouraged to sign up for parade in this year's fair

Crafters, photographers, farmers and bakers, it’s time to get busy. The Agassiz Fall Fair 2013 Prize Book is out, listing all the competitions for this year’s fair.

The Fair will run Friday, Sept. 13 and Saturday, Sept. 14. with the parade on Saturday morning at 10 a.m.

Families are being encouraged to join in the parade, with a special Family Fun Float class. These family floats are to have two people with the same last name, and no advertising is allowed on the floats.

There will be prizes for the best floats, with a grand prize of $250, a second place prize of $150 and a third place prize of $100.

Just as big as the parade is the exhibit competitions, with entries ranging from handmade quilts and preserves to children’s crafty creations.

It would be a good idea for float builders and exhibitors of all kinds to take note of this year’s theme: Have a ‘Berry’ Nice Time.

There is a special Berry Theme Section in this year’s prize book, with divisions for berry themed needlework, baking and canning. And of course, there is a special section for corn — the reason behind the annual fair.

Exhibitors are invited to submit their best corn chowder, corn husk dolls, popcorn figures and more.

Prize amounts and entry fees vary.

For more information, pick up a copy of the prize book from The Observer and other businesses around Agassiz, or visit  www.agassizfallfair.ca.
