Saanich Fair ( Colin Smith Takes Pics)

Another year, another extremely popular Labour Day weekend event!

The 154th annual Saanich Fair took place over the weekend, with a “Plant your Roots at the Fair” theme, with a feature on vegetables.

This year, the fair’s jam-packed schedule included fair classics like a pie eating contest, pedal tractor races, local farm fresh produce, and more.

True to its agrarian roots, the fair also showcased up to 27 types of farm animals, from chickens to alpacas, and everything in between.

Canadian blues rock band Wide Mouth Mason also performed on Sunday!
