147th Kirkton Fall Fair kicks off with talent show, exhibits tonight

The Kirkton-Woodham Community Centre’s exhibit hall will be brimming with the sights and smells of the area’s best baking, canning, quilting, fruits, vegetables and field crops tonight and for the rest of the weekend as the Kirkton Agricultural Society’s 147th Kirkton Fall Fair gets underway. Exhibits are open for viewing beginning at 7:00 pm, the same time the talent show is set to begin outside (so bring your lawnchairs!).

Also don’t miss the Kirkton 4-H Dairy Club’s Achievement Day show at noon, a sure-to-be-adorable baby show at 12:30 pm and live fiddle music at 2:00 pm.
Occurring throughout the day Saturday will be carnival games, a bale maze, numerous inflatable diversions, a bubble machine and much more at the Optimist Fun Zone, Wes’s Petting Zoo and Farm Animal Display, the Gay Lea Antique Travelling Museum, the Wild Turkey Federation Fur Pelts and Animal Display and a “Paint a Derby Car” display.
