Ontario Fall Fairs 2018

Bright lights and loud music seem like the opposite of small town living, but when the midway rolls into town and sets up in the local park, the only question on everyone's mind is - do I really want to go faster?
The answer my friend is to crank up the music and put the pedal to the metal. The CNE came to a close on the Labour Day long weekend which officially ends summer, however Fall doesn't start until the fair comes to town. And from Acton to Woodbridge the Fall fair season lasts till mid-October.

It takes about a week for the carnies to show up, set up the rides and concessions and put on the weekend festivities, usually starting on the Friday and finishing on Sunday. On the days before the fair opens a steady stream of locals show up with crafts, cooking and hobbies to enter into the various contests, hoping to take home a ribbon and a couple bucks in prizes. Young ladies enter Miss Small Town Fair and tiny babies gurgle during baby contests.

Many small fairs also feature agricultural competitions like the horse pulls, poultry, beef and dairy cattle competitions. Otherwise, if you want nail biting excitement it is time to watch some tractor and truck pulls. These photos are from the Acton Fall Fair 2018.

See more of the midway at night and into the day after the jump.
