Children enjoying the swing ride at last years Fall Fair.

Coming soon to a fair ground near you

The Pass Creek Fall Fair will be held September 26 and 27.

The Pass Creek Fall Fair is just a few weeks away. Castlegar’s salute to country living will be held September 26 and 27. At twenty years old, the Pass Creek Fair continues to grow and please young and old alike.

The antique car show, Dirty Diggers and Fun Swing will be back again this year. The children’s area will feature games, Bubbles the Clown and a bounce tent. The Mini-Golf course has been expanded to nine holes.

Make sure you show up to the fair hungry in order to enjoy the concession and many food vendors that will be present. The tantalizing scents make the food offerings hard to resist.

A fair isn’t complete without the exhibits of home grown, home spun and hand made products. Along with displays of arts, crafts, baking, preserving and needlecraft mingle gorgeous flowers and garden produce. The youth competition always showcases the amazing talents found in our local youth.

There are many trophies and prizes to be won including a $100 prize for the winner of this year’s Scarecrow competition.

The Dressage and Horse Show will run Friday through Sunday with events taking place all throughout the day.

In order to cut down on parking congestion, a bus will be running from the Castlegar Complex and Heritage Museum to the fair grounds. Simply park your car at these locations and catch the free round trip bus that will run from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. each day.
