It's that time again…the Peachland Fall Fair!
At the time of writing this, in early spring, I don't know if there will be a Fall Fair this year. Or possibly, there will be a virtual one. Last year's fair was canceled due to the Covid 19 pandemic, as were many local events. The treasured Fall Fair has been a fixture in our community for more than 100 years, so many of us are hopeful that it will return this year.
Despite there being no fair last year gardens were aplenty, as more people had stay-at-home time on their hands. Adults and children found many creative ways to keep busy. I hope this year we'll have an opportunity to view some of their creations -- either virtually or in-person.
My family has always enjoyed the Fall Fair, whether submitting entries or viewing the colorful displays of arts and crafts, baking, sewing, paintings, flower arrangements, writing, photography, and more. I still have some of my ribbons!
I'd like to recognize and thank the many dedicated volunteers who make the Fall Fair a success. It takes many hands to put on this annual two-day event.
No matter how the Peachland Fall Fair rolls out this year, the residents of the District of Peachland are always in for a treat!
Stay safe, stay healthy,
Mayor Cindy Fortin
