Rock Creek Fall Fair is on

The Rock Creek and Boundary Fair Association has announced that the Rock Creek Fall Fair is on schedule for Sept. 19 and 20.

The Rock Creek and Boundary Fair Association has announced that the Rock Creek Fall Fair is on schedule for Sept. 19 and 20. “The fairgrounds have been untouched by the Rock Creek wildfire”, said a spokesperson, “and, while our hearts and hands are with our friends and neighbours during this difficult time, we are still working away to bring about another ‘best ever’ fall fair.”

The scheduled line up of entertainment and activities has not changed, and the fair will again act as a yearly reminder to locals and visitors what a great area the Boundary is, particularly at this very emotional time.

Fair organizers have received many calls from people looking to donate towards the relief effort in the community; the RCBFA is in contact with local service organizations and once a fund has been established, the information will be posted on the fair website (rockcreekfallfair.ca).

“We deeply appreciate the goodwill of our friends, family and complete strangers at this time of great trauma,” the spokesperson added. “We owe a huge thank you to all the emergency responders and services support crews and volunteers that have, and still are, working to help us stabilize and recover.”
