Fall fair fun in Lighthouse

Crafts, cars and fun for the kids at the popular event Saturday

Ladies Auxiliary Pie ladies Evelyn Foot and Joyce Bartram were on hand at the Lighthouse Country Fall Fair Saturday.

The crowds turned out in force to the Lighthouse Community Centre on Saturday as local organizers presented the 43rd annual Lighthouse Country Fall Fair. One of the key elements of this event, organized by the Bow Horn Bay Community Club, is to give an opportunity for children in the Qualicum Bay/Bowser area to have a great time playing fun games and not having to worry about how much it costs. That’s because all the children’s activities were at no cost. And what fun activities there were, including hamster balls, a balance challenge, a bouncy castle, three  stages of musical entertainment, performances by Daisy the Cow and Farmer Vicki, Lucky Cluck chicken plucky, stilt walkers and a nail-driving competition, among others. Of course the other main focus of any fall fair has to be the displays, and once again Lighthouse Country showed its colours with a rainbow selection of jams and jellies, among many other products of local residents’ skill, craftsmanship and imagination.
