Fall fair arrives

The Mount Waddington Regional Fall Fair comes to Port Hardy.

PORT HARDY—Crafts, produce, art, food and entertainment are just part of the fun this weekend as the Mount Waddington Regional Fall Fair returns for its annual run on the North Island.

Port Hardy takes its turn to host the fair, which rotates between Port Alice, Port Hardy and Port McNeill on alternating years.

Exhibit entries may be dropped off tonight and tomorrow, and the fair opens to the public at 10 a.m. Saturday.

Much more information is available in our four-page pullout beginning on page 11, and additional info can be found at www.mountwaddintonfallfair.ca.
