THERE’S BED races, goat nuggets and music at the Skeena Valley Fall Fair coming up soon.

Bed Racing invites everyone to have fun creating, decorating and racing a bed with a garden theme.

Trophies will be awarded for fastest bed and all teams will be eligible for best costumes awards.

Teams can consist of three, four or five people and one person must ride in the bed at all times during the race.

Two times during the race the rider must switch with another team member and perform a stunt. Three different people must take turns riding the bed. Races start Sept. 7 at 2:30 p.m.

The Goat Nugget Drop is a variation on last year’s Cow Patty Drop.

Purchase a square on a grid in the field where you think the goat will drop its nugget. On Sept. 8, a goat will be released and wherever the nugget drops, the person who signed that square wins the prize.

For something more mellow, there’s musical entertainment thru the weekend, including Copper Mountain String Band, Six Gun Logic, Skeena North, Chase Waters and many more.

For more details on these and other events, see skeenavalleyfallfair.com.
