Hey fairgoers! First some business…when the draw winners and unclaimed button numbers are compiled, they’ll be posted on the Facebook page and on the website, along with a post that will be sent to subscribers of this website. If you won an item at the silent auction, pick up is today from 10 am – 1 pm at the Outdoor Education Centre on the main street (next to Wing’s).
Wasn’t that an incredible day!? We’re so thankful that we had perfect weather. We definitely were due! We’re also thankful for all the patrons who came out and made the day so special. There were seasoned fairgoers and first-timers and it seemed that a great time was had by all. We had the biggest car show ever, great music all day, so many awesome vendors and tons of great food. To celebrate Canada 150 we had painted canoe paddles on display and to add to the celebration of our local history, information about our exciting archeological dig that happened just last week. Our beautiful waterfront is a special place for the villagers and we’re so happy to share it with all of you.
Thanks to everyone who participated to make the fair happen – volunteers who worked tirelessly to plan and prepare, those who came to physically make it happen and then take it all away. Without volunteers, the Turkey Fair (and really, our entire world) wouldn’t be what it is today. Seeing so many people come to enjoy the fair and having our village seen and loved by so many is a great reward.
We’ll see you all next year on September 15, 2018.
