Members of the Sooke Fall Fair Society turn out delicious pies. Pies will be on sale again at the Sooke Fall Fair market at the Sooke Community Hall on August 30.

Merchants encouraged to dress up store fronts

Sooke Fall Fair theme celebrates the family farm in 2014

Calling all merchants and businesses to please dress up your store front to “Celebrate the Family Farm.” Celebrating the family farm is this year’s theme at the Sooke Fall Fair.

To enter go to www.sookefallfair.ca. Let’s dress up Sooke to celebrate our farmers and the good food they provide and the lovely pastoral scenes we enjoy.

Have you written up your favourite farm story for entry in the fair, which will also be entered in our Amusing Farm Story book, to be sold at the Christmas craft fair?

Keep deadheading those flowers and feeding those pumpkins and vegetables for fall fair entries. We are looking for some zucchinis for our Sookeini car races trials for August 30. They shouldn’t be very large, 12” or so and not too round as they go in a car and down the ramp. Dave and Ron have organized a pretrial for the Sookeini race and if you haven’t made a car, they will have some for sale for $1 and show you how to put together your prize car to win our largest trophy at the fair. Entry fees are $1, and you can enter on the 30.

On Saturday, August 30, we are also inviting all the young folks to come and make up their entries to the fair. We will have supplies and also invite you to bring along some of your own if you like. Bring along mom and/or dad, or the grandparents to help create your prize winner.

We are also taking early entries at the market on August 30 as well as selling those great homemade pies. Put in your order at 250-812-2830. See you there.

Please return your trophies ASAP for the Sooke Fall Fair. Call 250-812-2830 to arrange.
