HATS OFF TO THE FAIR

PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE 2014

        

This is our 167th year of operation, and we just keep getting better. Better at putting this fair together, better at making kids laugh, and generally have a good time. After all these years I hope we are getting better. All kidding aside, a fall fair is a time to celebrate the past year's good fortune, a good harvest, and good friends. We hope some of this is present this year.

There are some new things going on and some proven things are back. DoDo the Clown is back once again with many of his friends to help keep the kids laughing. The motorcycle stunt show is back to entertain everyone. The food vendors are back with onion rings, bacon on a bun, ice cream, French fries, and all that good stuff.

This year we have managed to get the Shrine Circus in town. The big tent will be setting up in July so keep an eye on our website for more information. Our 2nd annual “BRING ON SPRING” event takes place on Saturday, May 24th, and is once again a free event. There will be speakers and vendors all with a spring planting theme. On Sunday May 25th we will be sponsoring a charity WALK FOR DOG GUIDES fundraising event for Guide Dogs.

Back in 1847 when the first fair was held in Pine Grove on Islington Avenue, it was run by volunteers, much like it is today. Volunteers make many things happen everywhere not just at the fair. Without them there would not be a lot of the things we take for granted, like the fair, the Rib Fest and all of the Cancer Society events which are so important to research. The volunteers that run the Woodbridge Fair would all like to be home with their families having turkey, but they will be there, parking the cars, taking your money at the gate, helping paint pumpkins because, well, just because it is the Fair.

HATS OFF TO THE FAIR

See You At The Fair!

Bev Maxey,
President
Woodbridge Agricultural Society
