With Labour Day weekend come and gone, and kids going back to school, it’s beginning to feel like fall again. That, of course, means it’s just about time for the Williams Lake Harvest Fair! If you’re in town this weekend, don’t miss out on this Cariboo classic, complete with a rodeo, ranching competition, agricultural exhibitions and much more!
Our farmers and ranchers work hard all year round to give us healthy, delicious food, and the Harvest Fair is a great way to celebrate everything they do for us. The fair runs both Saturday and Sunday down at Stampede Park, and you can check out the Williams Lake Harvest Fair website, at www.wlharvestfair.ca, for all the details. The fair is a great chance for our farmers and ranchers to show off some of their amazing talents, with teams from all over the province competing for the title in the Rancher’s Challenge, and the Little Britches Rodeo running on both days! And of course, it’s a great opportunity to see, taste and buy some of the delicious products that our local producers have to offer. Don’t miss out on the Exhibit Hall and the Beef Show, not to mention the chili cookoff!
There’s something for the whole family, with free entertainment on the outdoor stage and a play-land for the kids. Getting around the fairgrounds is easy, not to mention fun, with horse-drawn wagons to get you to your destination.
I’d like to give a big thank you to all the volunteers and sponsors who make this event possible every year. The Harvest Fair always makes me look forward to the beginning of fall, and it’s all thanks to all your hard work and generous support. With so much to do and see, I know where I’ll be this weekend – I hope to see you there!
