News Sep 17, 2009 Ancaster News

A wide variety of special events will debut at this year’s Ancaster Fair, held at the new Ancaster Fairgrounds, 630 Trinity Road in Jerseyville.

Along with homecraft exhibits and demonstrations all weekend at Marritt Hall, guests can learn how to become a “Locavore” by eating locally grown, sustainable foods.

Visit the working steam engine at Heritage Square, threshing demonstrations, the Dukes of Hazard’s General Lee and the antique car show on Saturday or Sunday, Sept. 26 and 27.

Walk and talk with the animals at Old MacDonald’s Farm and take in blacksmith and sheep shearing demonstrations.

The Purina Pro Plan Dog Stars return this year, along with a new event, Bobcat square dancing.

The popular demolition derby also returns to action on Friday and Saturday evening. You can take a scenic ride with the Farmers Feed Cities Balloon Rides presented by Hyland Seeds.

The new Trinity Road fairgrounds features an air conditioned concession building to help guests beat the heat while browsing displays and commercial exhibits. Marritt Hall and the concession building are both fully accessible.

Guests who attend the Friday and Saturday night demolition derbies can bring a blanket and take a seat on a landscaped berm for an optimum view of the event. Unlike the former fairgrounds, which included a grandstand, the new venue has limited bleacher seating.

Familiar events are set to return including the Saturday morning baby show, sheep shearing and cattle milking demonstrations.Visit www.ancasterfair.ca .
