The Arnprior Fair kicks off today (Thursday). Fair Board President Brad Runtz notes this will be the last Fair event held within Town limits.
Runtz is hoping for great attendance. He says gates open at 4PM today. Activities include the Carter Show's Midway, from 4-11PM. The first of two popular demolition derbies is tonight at 7PM, and doesn't leave much left for the scrapyard.
All4One provides this evening's entertainment in the beer-tent area from 8-11PM. Papanack Zoo and the Farm Babies are a hit with the younger set from 4-7PM. Musical entertainment this year will see the Riley New Band perform on Friday night and Prism on Saturday night. My Broadcasting Corporation, parent company of Oldies 107.7/myFM, awarded a grant of $400.00 to the fair board to be used for Canadian musical acts at the fair. The Canadian Content Development grant is awarded yearly. Weekend Passes are $20, or $25 if you buy them at the gate. Kids under 3 are free.
