Poultry on parade at Agassiz Fall Fair

Poultry club a first at annual fair

For the first time in recent memory, a poultry club will be included in the 4H competitions at the Agassiz Fall Fair.

There have been chickens and other poultry brought to the fair as pets in the annual exhibition, Ken Schwaerzle says, but never a full club. The club is coming from Langley, and is the only one in the Fraser Valley, he says.

Agassiz is also home to the largest 4H rabbit show in B.C., and the largest 4H dog show.

This year, there are also three horse clubs coming out to compete. All 4H judging takes place on Saturday, starting in the morning.

To learn more about 4H, or any of the animals being shown this weekend, ask a competing 4H member. Speaking with the public and offering education to fairgoers is part of their mandate in showing at fairs around B.C.
