Jams, jellies and Lego accepted for exhibition

Entries for Agassiz Fall Fair exhibition is a great way to keep crafty kids busy this summer.

Here’s a way to keep little ones busy throughout the summer months. Pick up a prize list for the Agassiz Fall Fair and Corn Festival, and have a look through the categories for crafting, gardening and much more.

For years, Agassiz children have been submitting their hard work to the judges at the fair. And in return, they can receive ribbons and even cash prizes.

Entering each item will cost fifty cents, to help with the costs of running the exhibition. There are categories to fit most children’s hobbies and interests, including floral arts, baking, canning, sewing, drawing, painting and photography.

Children can enter their Lego creations, handmade fridge magnets, finger paintings, play dough monsters, or even write a poem about “What the Agassiz Fall Fair means to me.”

It’s not all about the kids, though. Adults are encouraged to bring out their best jams, jellies, wines and artistic efforts, to name a few.

This year will mark the 107th Agassiz Fall Fair and the 63rd Corn Festival, and will run from Friday evening, on September 16 to Saturday, September 17 at the Agassiz Fairgrounds.

Prize books, with complete information about how, when and what to enter in all divisions, are available in locations around town, including the Observer.

The deadline for entries is September 8. For more information, phone 604-796-3246.
