Fun at the 2016 Pass Creek Fall Fair

Pass Creek Fall Fair celebrates another successful year.



Sunny skies and and a wide array of entertainment brought out large crowds to the Pass Creek Fall Fair over the weekend. Organizers were pleased with the attendance that either set a record for Saturday, or was very close to the record. New this year were the crowd-pleasing lawn mower races. Another favourite was the Global FMX motor cross show, which featured riders doing amazing jumps, tricks and flips while flying through the air.
