‘Tis the season to be harvesting

Nakusp and area falling into the fair season

The 2012 Fall Fair is coming up soon in Nakusp, so get your zucchinis ready.

  • Sep. 7, 2012 5:00 a.m.

Agriculture has been a large part of this community in the past, especially during times of economic difficulty. Growing our own food is the main focus of becoming stable through changing times.

Come and share your achievements and help celebrate what we have accomplished in our community this year at the Fall Fair September 15 from 9:30 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. Bring your produce and exhibits to the Auditorium on Friday, Sept. 14, between 3 and 6 p.m.; judging will take place Friday evening.

Tables for selling your wares at the Fair are still available, and for more information call 250-265-4526. for any other questions, contact Janet at 250-265-4588.

This year’s Fall Fair is taking place at the same that Peter Blundell, Appraiser, comes to town with an Antiques Roadshow. To get on the roster to have your antiques appraised, contact the Nakusp Public Library.

Also on the agenda at the fair itself are the traditional presentations of veggies, fruits, home preserves, quilts and more, as well as the Nakusp and Area Community Foundation’s Jail & Bail, the kids’ Zucchini Races, and the Trashion Show, all of which are sure to delight spectators.

Be sure to get your zucchini racers ready, and create something you can wear or an accessory out of recyclable items to style in the Trashion Show.

Saturday’s Schedule: Antique Roadshow – 9 a.m. until 5 p.m., Jail & Bail – 10-11:30 a.m., Zucchini Races begin at 12:30 p.m., followed by the Trashion Show around 1 p.m.  Please pick up your exhibit items at 3:30 p.m. on Saturday.
