Kimberley Fall Fair sold out

Kimberley's favourite September weekend is upon us

The Kimberley Community Fall Fair is always a success and each year the number of people who attend increases. As those numbers increase, the number of exhibitors rises as well as small and large businesses seek to tempt fair-goers with their wares.

Chair Bev Middlebrook says she has exhibitors from as far away as Moose Jaw, Sask. and Vancouver booked for this weekend’s big event —part of a sold out array of booths at the Marysville Arena.

Events inside sold out two weeks before the Fair, but Middlebrook will be selling space outside right up until Friday.

Middlebrook says there are lots of new booths as well as the favourite regulars, lots of food booths inside and out, plenty of kids’ activities in the Kiddies Corner, and an outdoor beverage garden.

It all happens this weekend, Saturday and Sunday at the Marysville Arena.

“It’s going to be another great year,” Middlebrook said.
