Aldergrove Fair offers fun for all

Keep an eye on the zucchini patch to ensure there’s enough to take part in the Aldergrove Fair Days Zucchini Luge Races.

People of all ages will be able to compete in this, one of the new events for 2014.

Events run July 19 and 20 at the community’s biggest event of the year.

The fun kicks off with the Friday auto show ’n shine at Aldergrove Community Secondary.

The parade goes Saturday at 10 a.m.

There will be Cub Car Races in addition to the Zucchini Luge Races.

Expect to see lots of tractors this year as well as the fair marks the 125th anniversary of the first motorized tractor.

The public can also enter the tractor contests. The antique Tractor Pull and Garden Tractor Pull and Threshing Demo run from noon to 3 p.m. each day.

Other popular events include the parade which is 10 a.m. Saturday, the 4-H celebration, a KidsZone and the agricultural fair. Entertainment includes magicians, music of various kinds, dancers, and educational animal displays by the Radical Raptors Flying Show and Mike the Reptile Guy.

Aldergrove will again offer fast draw competition but this time it’s the World Fast Draw Championships, so people can see the best shooters in the world.

Even the Aldergrove public library is getting in on the fun, running a book sale Friday and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
