Sooke Fall Fair

The Sooke Fall Fair car show and swap meet was a great success. A big thank you to all the vendors and car restorers.

The days are quickly heating up to the fair. The catalogues are in the stores and the competition is on with some new categories: selfies in photos, mud pies in junior kitchen craft, compost/soil memoirs in literary, edible flower arrangement in flowers, useful items from salvaged material in hobbies, useful-repurpose item in needlecraft, a scarecrow contest, Whose Scat Is That contest, animals, games and special artwork embracing the fair’s theme, Embracing Soil and Light.

Fall fair organizers need last year’s trophies returned ASAP. Please  call  250-812-2830.

If you have an amusing farm story to submit, the fair is still hoping to publish a book with your stories.

Remember to wash your animals before you enter them at the fall fair and make sure they are  disease and flea free. There will be security on site at the fair on Saturday night, so if you would like to leave your animals overnight, please let Don Moloney (250-642-3096) of the animal section know.

The Sooke Fall Fair is Sept. 12 to 13 at the Sooke Community Hall.
