The Agassiz fairground was once again a place of excitement, entertainment and fun at the 115th Fall Fair Saturday (Sept. 14).
From the morning parade to the afternoon pie-eating competition, hundreds spent the day enjoying family events, food and rides on the midway.
The exhibits inside the Agricultural Hall showcased some of the best home-grown and home-made items from local residents. This year saw more than 1,500 exhibits, for everything from quilts to Lego structures to green tomatoes.
Outside, attendees visited animals brought in by Agassiz’s 4H club, took in dog herding demonstrations, checked out the antique tractor pull and participated in some annual competitions: corn husking, pie-eating and goat milking.
The goat milking competition saw late-addition Laurie Throness, MLA for Chilliwack-Kent, take home the top prize, followed by first time milkers Sgt. Mike Sargent and Agassiz Christian School principal Judy De Waal.
The Fall Fair festivities will continue throughout Saturday evening. The midway will be taken down Sunday, and the fair won’t return until September of next year.
