The Fenelon Falls Agricultural Society held their 126th annual fair at the Fenelon Fairgrounds this on Aug 7-10, 2014. 
Locals and visitors enjoyed many events scheduled throughout the weekend. Truck and Tractors pulls, demolition derby and horse pulls, animal shows and demonstrations enticed the crowds. 

A large collection of local homemade preserves and desserts along with fine handiwork and crafts were entered into the fair competitions. Many ladies were on site to demonstrate their skills. 

The children enjoyed the 4-H club shows and competing in the various Fur ‘n’ Feather competitions. The variety of ‘farm life’ activities proved to be exciting for the farm kids as well as those learning from the sidelines. Craft tables and the midway was a hit in between competitions and enjoying the various food vendors. 

The fun for the adults continued into the late hours with live entertainment held on the Saturday night. Boot stomping and knee slapping was a plenty! 

Much hard work went into organizing and running the the many events so that our community can enjoy a traditional country fair. Hats off to all of the committed individuals that made the weekend possible.
