It’s fair time
The Williamstown Fair returns August 10 to 13, as the St. Lawrence Valley Agricultural Society presents the 206th edition of the oldest agricultural exhibition in Canada.
Dating back to 1812, the fair continues to be one of the highlights of the Summer.
“A heritage fair with a family friendly atmosphere,” the event kicks off tomorrow (August 10) at 6 p.m. when the County Lads band will perform and a horse show will be held.
Throughout the weekend, there will be chili, cattle, costumes, tractor-pulling, horse, cowboy, talent and baby contests, displays, demonstrations, volleyball and lip sync.
Next week, August 17 to 20, the Vankleek Hill Agricultural Society hosts its 173rd edition, with the theme “Celebrating The Past 150 Years – Embracing the Future.”
The program includes cattle and horse shows, the flower and home craft displays. The Saturday night demolition derby is always a highlight of the fair. However, in recent years, a combine demolition derby has proven to be another crowd favourite.
The full programs for both fairs can be found inside this paper.
