Fall Fair returns to Port Alice

The Fall Fair will be held in Port Alice this year

PORT ALICE – The Fall Fair is returning to Port Alice and plans are underway to make up for a year missed.

The Mount Waddington Regional Fall Fair was last held in Port Alice in 2007. It should have been held in the community again in 2010, but Port McNeill hosted the fair when Port Alice declined.

The theme for the fair reflects the community it will be held in. Tradition, Transition and Tomorrow is intended to honour the traditions of the fair, acknowledge that the North Island (and especially Port Alice) has gone through a transition period and look forward to our future, declares posters advertising the event.

The fair will be held Sept. 10 and 11 at the arena in Port Alice.

Organizers are encouraging gardeners, crafters and all North Islanders to start planning now to enter exhibits in the fair. An exhibit booklet will be available in libraries this month.

The committee is also looking for more volunteers to make the fair a success. To volunteer or for more information, call Corrine Tiberghien at 250-284-3594 or Carol Prescott at 250-284-3518.
