Time to finish those fall fair entries

Annual Agassiz fair includes exhibition, 4H displays and parade

Time is running out to be a part of the Agassiz Fall Fair and Corn Festival.

There are many ways to be a part of the annual tradition, from entering a float into the popular parade, offering a hand to volunteer or by submitting an entry into the exhibition.

Children are encouraged to try their hand at a wide range of crafts, hobbies and homemaking skills in the exhibition.

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.
