Agassiz Fall Fair 2010

Agassiz Fall Fair Midway © 2010
The Agassiz Fall Fair is an important day on the calendars of the local Fraser Cheam people. Sure the midway opens the night before but the real excitement is on the Saturday. Maybe it is because so many people have a hand in it as a volunteer.  This Fair has been going strong since 1901 and has always required the assistance of an army of helpers.  If you do find yourself "duty-free", well, strolling around and catching up with neighbours and friends seems to be the order the day. The fair grounds are full of 4-H shows, lumberjack exhibitions, tractor pulls, midway fun, crafts but my favourite event comes from the madcap men and women of lawnmower racing. I guess people were born to test the limits of just about everything even a ride-on lawnmower.

Sure there are spills as the drivers push these ride-on lawnmowers to their limits.  It makes for some exciting viewing. Techniques vary between drivers not all are successful.

Every weekend there seems to be something wonderful happening in the Chilliwack Fraser Cheam area. Imagine living in a community like this.
