Elmvale Fall Fair

by Judi “Scoop” McWilliams

It seems appropriate that we are writing about an event in the Town of Elmvale.

Appropriate, because Elmvale was the first town we visited as Ontario Visited!

In April 2007, Gary (Festival Nomad) and I drove to Elmvale to the Elmvale Maple Syrup Festival.

We had a great time, then, and knew that a visit to the Elmvale Fall Fair would be just as fun.

We weren’t disappointed!

First there was an awesome parade.

The Pipes and Drums were stirring, they set the mood.

From then on it was fun all the way!

The floats had that “Hometown” appeal.

Very imaginative!

Everyone was having a wonderful time!

Like I said, the floats were very Hometown

… and, some were very funny!

Unlike some parades, we were sorry to see this Elmvale Fall Fair parade end!

It was now time to visit the activities and displays inside the Elmvale fairgrounds.

I loved this part of the fair, the agricultural displays.

To me, this is what fairs are all about, local harvesting and homemade preserves.

The Bee Display was very insightful. It showed how important bees are to our farm communities!

I love how the kids get involved.

Both inside and on the fairgrounds.

As usual, The Nomad seemed to be more interested in the farm animals!

Fortunately there were lots of beautiful animals for him to admire!

The Elmvale Fall Farm had so much to offer visitors!

An amazing parade

Interesting agricultural displays

Beautiful farm animals

And, a fun midway

Something for everyone in the family!

As we left the Elmvale Fall Fair and I looked back, I thought, “Well done Elmvale, you’ve captured our hearts and imaginations once again!
