Skeena Valley Fall Fair welcomes crowds to grounds

This is the first time the fair is a three-day event

From prize-winning chickens, live music and cotton candy galore — the 49th annual Skeena Valley Fall Fair has hit off the long weekend in the Terrace area.

The Thornhill Community Grounds saw crowds come through for the fair, as it makes its debut as a three-day event from Aug. 30 to Sep. 1.

A full weekend of events have been made available for all ages, including a petting zoo, a nerf gun battle station, a maze, various food vendors, and several booths with prizes.

Animal lovers could visit the barns to greet the rabbits, ducks and horses. The Totem Saddle Club also had their show, showcasing the best of their riders.

The zucchini races at the tennis court brought up some green competition as the vegetable took on a new purpose and zoomed down a wooden-made course that resembled a slide.

There were three categories of winners, divided into fastest zucchini, furthest zucchini and best decorated.

The Skeena Valley Fall Fair will run until tomorrow.
