Hi Neighbour Day attracts participants young and old Aug. 18

Errigton’s annual Hi Neighbour Day took place at the Errington Farmers’ Market on Saturday, Aug. 18, where the annual parade and zucchini races attracted a crowd of participants and watchers.

The parade featured a variety of entries, including the Errington Taekwondo School showing off their martial art abilities, a potatoe juggler on a unicycle, a ride-a-mower decorated as a large cupcake, a dragon and much more.

The zucchini races were organized by Brianna Von Wartburg, and done in memory of her grandfather and zucchini race proponent and organizer John Olson who passed away earlier this year.
