Attendance at the Harvest Fair last weekend was about the same as last year says fair president Tammy Tugnum, but entries were well up over last year.
She says exhibits were up by about five per cent and entries in the various categories increased by about eight per cent.
But the real surprise was the huge number of entries in the children’s categories — up by 20 per cent to 447 entries.
She says the Ranch Rodeo and Little Britches were very well attended and people loved the horse drawn wagon rides with the horses wearing their little “bee wings.”
High point winners in the Curling Rink exhibits were as follows. Cheryl Proctor was the grand aggregate winner.
