It's hard to believe the 99th Peachland Fall Fair will be taking place soon. Thank you to the many dedicated volunteers and organizers who have been putting on the colourful and entertaining event for nearly a century. It has always been something the entire community can enjoy. But those many volunteers couldn't have done it without the gardeners, bakers, crafters, artists, photographers, brewers, wine makers, and more, who have been willing to display their hand-made entries for all to see.
You may find my family's name on a few of those trophies. My kids never missed a Fall Fair and were always excited to collect a ribbon or two for their special creations. The Juniors section is one of my favourites.
While the organizers, volunteers and entrants make for a great show, there is one more ingredient in the Fair's success -- the public -- the hundreds of people who flow in each year to roam the many colourful aisles filled with an eye-catching variety of entries. The talent on display knows no age limit or skill level.
I can't wait, and I hope to see you there at the 99th Peachland Fall Fair!It's hard to believe the 99th Peachland Fall Fair will be taking place soon.
