There were a lot of ideas discussed for activities at the September Fall Fair. Members met Tuesday, February 25, to form plans for this year’s fair, the forty-ninth annual Agricultural Fall Fair. Among the ideas were a watermelon eating contest, old-time races for youngsters, dunk tank, farmer’s market, milking cow game, and chicken bingo.
Due to poor attendance at last year’s fair, one of the problems facing the Fair Board this year is a lack of funds to do anything major. All of the usual displays of handicrafts, canning, baking, vegetables, fruits and flowers will be part of the fair, but this year the focus will shift to greater involvement of the community. The Fair Board will be looking for people to do demonstrations, particularly those who are involved in some local organization. Any group wishing to do some kind of demonstration should contact Lisa Carleton 250-295-3535 or Fran Murphy 250-295-6993 or come to the March 25 regular meeting at the library at 6:30 p.m. Any group wishing to participate in the Fall Fair should attend this meeting.
Vendors will be welcome at the fair, and vendor forms are available now—contact Lisa at 250-295-3535 for your form. These forms will also be distributed at the Cowboy Festival in Kamloops for all groups using the fairgrounds this year.
Ideas are most welcome, if you have any you’d like to share please contact fair president Dan Kastor at 250-295-6993 or contact us via our Facebook page www.facebook.com/princetonfallfair
