The leaves are changing colours and it’s that time of year again, the time of the fall fairs.

The 11th annual Knox Fall Fair will be coming back to the Knox United Church in Parksville.

On Sept. 19 at 345 Pym St., people can come experience a  massive garage sale, food, entertainment, baking, local produce and a silent auction.

This year’s garage sale will feature a variety of different items including: books, furniture, clothing, children’s toys, crafts, Christmas accessories and much more.

Food will also be provided. From 7:30 to 10 a.m. one can get themselves a delicious breakfast of pancakes, sausages and muffins, followed by a shortcake tea from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and a barbecue lunch of hotdogs and hamburgers with a vegetarian option from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m, according to a Knox press release.

More than 200 volunteers prepared for the special fair that will be both inside and outside of the church.

The kid zone is back with face painting, arts and crafts.

The fair has free admission with a shuttle service from Ballenas Secondary School.

This year will be a non pet event, with guide dogs being an exception.

Sales open at 8 a.m. with the fair closing at 2 p.m.

All proceeds from the event will help local community groups such as the Salvation Army and the Society of Organized Services that use the Knox facility for programs, the release said.

The fair is also an eco-friendly event, encouraging the public to use their own shopping bags and to avoid plastic water bottles.
