2021 Fair Activities
The Fair is cancelled, but there is still lots to do!
This August, the Palmerston Agricultural Society is getting back into the swing of things for a fair. Since planning needs to done well in advance of what the government decides for re-opening plans, we have come up with some events that could take place no matter the phase the province is in.
This is a judged competition where businesses can decorate their windows and residents can decorate their yards to reflect our theme, advertise for the fair and unify the town.
This year we have chosen Sunflowers and Scarecrows for the theme. Prizes will be 1st – $100.00, 2nd – $80.00, 3rd – $60.00. There will be a Business class and a Residential class.
We hope you will be willing and able to participate. Please register with Angela Schneider – email to email@example.com or call/text to 519-291-8668 by August 15, 2021 to be judged. Displays to be up until August 29, 2021

A Drive Thru Parade will be held on August 28, 2021. We will set up stationary ‘floats’ around the arena parking lot and have spectators drive or walk through.
