Williams Lake Harvest Fair this Saturday and Sunday

Williams Lake Harvest Fair provides all sorts of interesting exhibits and shows for the whole family.

The corn is as high as an elephant’s eye and ready for picking out at Soda Creek just in time for the lakecity’s annual Harvest Fair coming up this weekend in the Stampede Grounds.

There are more events and displays than ever this year for visitors to see and those who enjoy the fun of displaying all those wonderful farm and garden products they have grown or raised or sharing the arts and home-crafts they love to do.

Be it the popular pet parade, caricature drawings, riding in a horse drawn wagon, or heading down to watch the Little Britches Rodeo, Ranch Rodeo, or the gymkhana there are lots of events to enjoy in and around the curling rink, small animal barns and the Trail Riders Indoor arena.

There will also be entertainment on the outdoor stage all weekend and fun things for children to do such as shooting a potato gun or the bungy run.

The Williams Lake Harvest Fair this year features the theme Bee-Lieve it or Not in celebration of our bee friends that make it possible for everything to grow.

In addition to a bee display and products, there will be a demonstration booth on raising chickens in your backyard, and one about raising goats.

The spinners and weavers will also be giving demonstrations and the popular dog agility match returns.

Cut flowers, floral art, potted plants, photography, quilting, knitting, children’s art, homemade wine, home baking and canning, all sorts of vegetables, rabbits, fancy birds, and other animals will be there to see.

And of course there will be a large trade fair featuring displays by local businesses and community clubs.
