Plan your Fall Fair entries now

Time to start thinking about what you'll be entering for the Ashcroft Fall Fair

Time to get your entries ready for this year's Fall Fair!

The Ashcroft and District Fall Fair – which this year showcases Blue Jeans and Country Scenes – is just around the corner.  Now is the perfect time to start planning your entries.  Fair Booklets are available at businesses around town, as well as on our website (www.ashcroftfallfair.ca).

There are some changes to categories that we’d like to tell you about.  For those bakers who enter the Country Fair’s baking contest, you’ll notice that there is no Tenderflake Pie or Mazola/BeeHive Muffins category this year.  Instead, you will find Fleischmann’s Cornstarch Shortbread Cookies and Fleischmann’s Baking Powder/Crown Corn Syrup Loaf.  A reminder that proof of purchase for the products used MUST be attached to your entry form.  Happy Baking!

For all you photographers out there, our 2013 Themed Photo is Farming Equipment (and to get ready for 2014, keep a look out for Cows when you are on your travels).  There are two photography sections again this year: one for novice photographers (those of you who take photos as a hobby), and one for advanced photographers (those of you who get paid for your photos, or who’ve taken that perfect shot and feel you can compete).

Mark your calendars for Sept. 8, and get ready for a great Fair!
