This is an exciting year for the Peachland Fall Fair, as they celebrate their 98th year and the 150th birthday of our nation. A special Canada 150 theme “Canada Proud – Harvesting Traditions” is sure to impress visitors to the fair.
I’m certain the many entrants – some long-time participants, others novice – are busy working on their entries already. As someone whose family has participated in the fair over the years, in crafts, baked goods, canning, flowers, writing and photography, and more, I encourage participants of all ages to join in the fun. Don’t be shy. It’s very rewarding to display your special creation made by your own hands.
One of my favourite sections at the fair is “Children & Youth.” We have incredibly talented young people in our community. It’s always a delight to roam their section to see what their young creative minds have produced, and watch their faces when they first catch sight of a ribbon next to their entry.
I’d like to say a special thank you to the many volunteers. The Peachland Fall Fair would not happen without the hard work and dedication of a small army of volunteer organizers and section heads.
Congratulations to the Peachland Fall Fair on their 98th year, and a Happy Canada 150!
Mayor Cindy Fortin
