Back to HomeFeature Article - August 6, 2009 Parham Fair is coming! Come one, come all to the 117th Parham Fair on Aug 28-30. The plans are set, events scheduled, and all we need is YOU! We have many events to participate in: greased pig contest (new this year), tug-o-war, lawnmower races, antique tractor pull, demolition derby, livestock shows, pet show, children’s games, crafts and baking. Show off your craft projects. Do you make the best apple pie? Maybe you have grown the largest pumpkin in the area. Does your cat have the longest tail, or your dog longest ears? Can you catch a frog that jumps the farthest? Visit our website www.parhamfair.ca for an entry form or drop by Parham General Store to purchase a membership and fair book for all the entries. Another way to participate is to volunteer. There is a wide range of activities which you might be interested in and you could volunteer as little as two hours to help out. Would you like to be security for the demolition derby? A cook at the canteen? Flag for the lawnmower races? Help out in the palace? Do you need volunteer hours to graduate next year? You could earn your 40 hours in one weekend at the fair and have a great time doing it! Be a part of our team. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Debra Smith at 613-377-6431.
