The 178th Annual Kingston Fall Fair kicked off today at the Kingston Memorial Centre. This is a great opportunity to check out some neat things that us city folk don’t see all that often.
In addition to food, craft vendors and a midway, there is a competition out there for everyone. The fair features competitions in the culinary arts, dairy cattle, flowers, fruits and vegetables, crafts such as woodworking and about a billion other things. There is live entertainment every day from bands such as Picket Fences and the Seeley’s Bay Olde Tyme Fiddlers and the finals for the Country Singing Showdown will be held on Friday and Saturday. If you’re not so much interested in the tunes, you can check out the horse show, the tractor pull or the demolition derby.
We have to accept the fact that fall is here and I think the fair is a great way to welcome it. Grab a warm sweater and go check it out. It goes ’til Sunday and is $7 for adults and $5 for students under 18 or you can get a pass for the whole weekend. So go hear some fiddles, eat some corn on the cob and embrace fall.
