Tlell Fall Fair Sunday

  • Jul. 30, 2004 11:00 a.m.

So far this season, we’ve had Masset Harbour Days, Hospital Day in Charlotte, Skidegate Days, Canada Days, and Logger Sports Day, each one featuring the unique cultures of our islands’ communities.
This Sunday, Aug. 1, it’s Tlell’s turn to showcase its eclectic spirit at the annual Tlell Fall Fair.
The fair grounds (located across from Misty Meadows campground) will come alive this weekend with music, fun competitions, costumes, delicious international food, and kids’ activities.
The theme for this year’s festivities is ‘The Hundred-Acre Woods,’ (think Christopher Robin) and there will be prizes for costumes. The day will start at 10 am, with exhibits and food booths will opening up. There will be an open mike at 10 am, (this is your chance to become a star!) followed by Victoria musician Paul Hann on stage.
Do you have a particularly beautiful ‘pair of pullets’? You can enter your chickens, roosters, guinea pigs, rabbits, ducks, cows, and goats in the livestock and poultry competitions. To enter, bring your furred or feathered friends on Sunday morning between 8 and 10 am. All other entries must be brought to the fairgrounds on Saturday afternoon between 3 pm and 6 pm.
All fair-goers will have a chance to vote for their favourite entries in the craft challenges, decorated cakes, floral arrangements, and veggie sculptures.
Don’t forget to bring the kids – there will be pony rides, a story tent, and a toy boat building contest, making this a great family event. Kids 12 and under are free, and for everyone else, admission is $5 for the whole day. Don’t miss it!
