As always, the outdoor stage at the Agassiz Fall Fair will feature a full lineup of performers, including several local favourites.
Agassiz’s Adam Briscoe kicks the show off on Friday night, followed by hypnotist Lee Dyson and then Terri Bremner’s country show.
On Saturday, the stage is home to everything from the opening ceremonies and the crowing of the Corn King or Queen, to the annual goat milking competition.
Entertainers to take the stage Saturday include Jeff Bodner’s Essence of Elvis tribute, Daryl Weyman’s Reflections in Black tribute to Johnny Cash, Adam Briscoe, and Terri Bremner. And on Saturday night, adults can catch The Roadrunners in the beer gardens.
But there is entertainment all around the fairgrounds, with something for everyone.
Kids will love to watch the BMX Bike show, while dads won’t want to miss the logging demonstrations.
Other highlights include Rosie Ribbonstar, wheelbarrow races, a pie eating competition, and of course, the exhibits in the Agricultural Hall.
