Giant pumpkins and squash amazed this little girl at the Pass Creek Fall Fair.

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.
