Why an Interview,,,

Over the years we have been able to meet and talk with some very interesting people. They have shared with us their knowledge and have provided us with a great deal of insight as to how and why festivals and events work and why they are so important to our communities and to the Province of Ontario. With this in mind, we decided that we wanted you to meet and hear from some of the wonderful people who work so hard to provide us all with such wonderful Ontario Festivals and Events! We are pleased and proud to present "THE INSIDE SCOOP"!

Ontario Visited Experience ~ Excerpt of Ontario Fairs Visited Article to give you a taste of what to expect at the Fair … by Judi (Scoop) McWilliams … At a beautiful modern building with a huge porch and grand entrance we found the Fair offices. At the entrance rows and rows of competition flowers and arrangements were displayed in glass vases, and clear stands allowing the open aired ambiance to showcase these spectacular displays and arrangements. We continued to explore this grand building. The main hall housed displays of agriculture of all kinds. Quilts, baked goods, crafts were on display. Rows of wheat housed in wooden boxes allowed us to view the types of grains. This entire building was huge and so well organized it allowed us to enjoy ourselves immensely. It was colourful, educational and entertaining all at once. There were hands on agricultural activities and demonstrations all day. We reluctantly left the building to return to the brilliant sunshine outside. At one end of the fair grounds we explored “Heritage Square”, the antique tractor and equipment displays. There were volunteers explaining these spectacular displays to the visitors. One building was designed as an old fashioned general store, right down to the original pricing of goods from the era. Tall metal black stallions stood beside the store making for a great "photo shot". Rows and rows of tractors from all sizes and periods of time adorned the field as we walked with amazement.  There were activities from Steam Engines, to Operating Thresher, Sawmill, Working Windmill, Rope Maker, Walking Plows, and more. I think the Operating Thresher captured our attention for quite some time as we watch in amazement.
