Sooke Fall Fair around the corner

Sooke Fall Fair around the corner

Annual event takes places on Sept. 8-9

The countdown has begun for the Sooke Fall Fair.

This year’s theme is Plan-et Clean Fresh Air at the Fall Fair.

The fair runs Sept. 8 and 9 at the Sooke Community Hall.

Sooke Fall Fair catalogues are available at local businesses, and entry forms can be dropped off at Shoppers Drug Mart.

Several new items are introduced this year’s fair including bee categories, a combined arts and craft section, junior section, and Lego Land section.

“We will have a special tent with an opportunity for folks to take selfies with our banner with local foods and see what products are available locally and have an opportunity to win prizes with B.C. Fairs for promoting Buy B.C. via social media,” said Ellen Lewers, Sooke Fall Fair past-president in a press release.

Sooke Country Market will again be a part of the fair on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The Sooke Lions Club will again offer up its pancake breakfast on Sunday.

There will be pony rides on Saturday and the ever popular pet parade on Sunday.

“The Lions will again be serving up a fantastic food selection outside for your convenience and the photograph section is now being hosted in the dining room so a one stop venue for a great two day celebration of local agriculture,” Lewers added.

“Remember, the fair has moved to more cash prizes and gift certificates supporting our theme Plan-et Clean, Sooke Fall Fair is Fresh Air, to be responsible in how we manage our lives and homes to protect and enhance our region.”
