It’s time for the fair

 Two entries tied for first place in the Shawville Fair gate decorating contest. On the left is the entry of Larry and Stacy Howard and on the right, Scott and Jessica Stephens’ contribution. The contest was held last year for the 160th anniversary of the fair and continued this year for Canada 150.

Last week The Equity had a chat with Shawville Fair board member Mavis Hanna to discuss several changes and new additions for the fair’s 161st iteration and announce the winners of the gate decorating contest.
“Last year we started a gate competition that gave people the opportunity to decorate their gate as a part of our 160th celebration,” she said. “This year we repeated it because of Canada’s 150th and we received some really good entries.”
