So many memories that happened in the fall, like getting married and the births of my two children, which really can't be topped! However, the fall was also when I retired to devote more time to scrapbooking, so I'd call that a special fall memory. Laughing Laughing Laughing

My favourite fall fair memory is wandering through the handicraft building and seeing all the beautiful creations made by the ladies and gentlemen from the surrounding area...so much talent.

There are so many to choose from... I got married in the fall, I met my husband in the fall, I went to my first Scrapfest in the fall and will obviously be there again Very Happy and we also have an actual fair in my town, the largest in our area, and our family always does well. My memories of the excitement on my daughter's face every year when we go and when she gets her prize money is priceless.
Can't wait to see everyone there again!

Growing up we always had family day at The Brome Fair which takes place over Labour Day weekend. There were rides, animals, crafts, and games. It was the place to go to see people you hadn't seen over the summer or longer, which was the best thing about going.

Our Elmvale Fall Fair is held over Thanksgiving Week end ( it's funny I say our, because I haven't actually lived there for the past 15 yrs. but it will always be home). It's a time when everyone comes home. You see and visit with friends and relatives you haven't seen forever just walking through the grounds. The village is bursting at the seams with people and families enjoying the event. My favorite is the arts building and finding out who won the grand prize this year. It's always a duel between Mrs. Ritchie and Mrs. Allen (these ladies sure can quilt). Another fav. was helping to run The kids pony and horse show all through my high school years Shocked and they still have it now Cool Cool that's cool. as you can see I can go on and on about it. Embarassed Embarassed Embarassed very good memories. Thanks for asking . see ya'll soon

My favourite fall fair memory happened when my family and I were returning home from a fall camping trip and stumbled on a fair. We were ready for a "stretch our legs break" so we parked and went to the fair. I can still see the stains on my children's faces from the huge candy apples and the flavour of them. mmmmmmm how I love candy apples!

Rolling Eyes my favourite time for the fall fair was being able to go to all the tractor pulls, watch the horse jumping and getting to eat the delicious taffy apples. I also like to watch them carve all of the animals from the tree stumps using chain saws Laughing Laughing it was such an amazing site to watch and I could never understand how they could control that huge blade.

Brome Fair was our 'go to' fair too. Miss the Townships.

My favourite fall fair memories are from the Markham Fair. I took my son out of school every year on the Friday to ride the rides (no crowds). Then the rest of the weekend we would go to the demolition derby, visit the farm animals and walk through the craft buildings. We always got caramel apples and mini donuts! We haven't done it in a few years.....he grew up! But now we have two more little ones and I'll get to create more memories with them there Smile

My favourite fair memory takes me back to when my family lived in a small town outside of Peterborough called Norwood. The fall fair at Thanksgiving was a major event; but I was not so much attracted to the rides as I was to fair taffy! This stuff was definitely not good for you but who cared- you could only get it once a year. So we stocked up and ate that stuff until our bellies hurt. This stuff was so sticky it could almost pull out every filling you had in your mouth. The one thing about fair taffy however was that it would only last a few days before it turned back into a very hard strip of dark sugar- a hammer could not break into it. A few years ago I went back to the Norwood Fair and bought a fist full of taffy. Not the way I remembered it. It was so sweet I could only eat one bite. I gave the rest to a kid I saw waiting in line to buy his own. I hope his mother does not send me the dentist bill!

My favorite fall fair memory comes from the Ancaster Fall Fair. Growing up in Ancaster the fall fair was always a big event for young and old. One element of the Ancaster Fall Fair is that of the homecrafts and school exhibits. I remember as a youth having my penship from school entered into the competitions as well as some homegrown pumpkins etc. But my biggest achievement at the Ancaster Fall Fair was taking first prize in the Crewel Embrodiery division which a very large sailing ship that I had made for my husband. I was absolutely thrilled at that time to win 1st place honours for my craft!! :)
