The Trin­ity Con­cep­tion Fall Fair in Har­bour Grace has been known to bring fam­i­lies and friends out to take in the fes­tiv­i­ties, check out the per­form­ers and take a look at the lo­cal booths set up in­side the S.W. Moores Me­mo­rial Sta­dium. For some, it’s tra­di­tion and oth­ers it is their first time.

Lo­cal tal­ent show par­tic­i­pants, Trin­ity Con­cep­tion baby pageant con­tes­tants and their par­ents and ven­dors gath­ered Satur­day Sept. 28 for an af­ter­noon of en­ter­tain­ment which be­gan at 1 p.m.

More than two-dozen chil­dren signed up for the an­nual baby boy, baby girl, prince and princess pageants. Par­ents, guardians and other fam­ily mem­bers walked the chil­dren across the stage to a gath­er­ing of some 50 peo­ple, cheer­ing for each adorable child.

Af­ter the crown­ing, a tal­ent show was un­der­way, with lo­cal singers and mu­si­cians tak­ing to the stage to show­case their skills and tal­ent in front of a crowd of some 100 peo­ple.

Dur­ing the per­for­mances, ven­dors sold cook­ies, photo prints, raf­fle tick­ets and hair feath­ers keep­ing ev­ery­one busy and en­ter­tained through­out the re­main­der of the af­ter­noon

New­found­land Rep­tiles were also in at­ten­dance with rep­tiles, tur­tles and a very large python. Visi­tors had the op­por­tu­nity to hold the large snake (with the help of a han­dler if needed).

The fol­low­ing are some high­lights from the Satur­day af­ter­noon fes­tiv­i­ties at the TC Fall Fair.
