Ellie here, with some updates on our Vegreville Country Fair, 2016!  I attended the parade to kick off this great fair, which saw a great turnout with regard to both floats and spectators.

I also attended the fair on August 6th and watched my first chariots and chuckwagons races; exciting stuff!  The stands were filled with cheering spectators, a testament to the races being a big draw at this event.

Another popular draw was the music stage where the audiences were treated to some excellent musical talents.

We had a good variety of interesting vendors throughout the grounds, including delicious food vendors.  Strewn throughout the grounds, interspersed with vendors, were exciting midway rides and games booths.
