Maple Ridge Fair, BC, Canada - 19th July 2008

By: AbbyB

We went to the Maple Ridge Fair today.  Abby's family is not really into the country thing, but they entered some things into the fair for the heck of it, to see if they'd win anything.

The fairgrounds

We made a beeline for the showroom...

Look!  Abby's crocheted birthday cupcake won first prize!

And the scarf that Erin made for their mom won first prize and a best in show rosette!

And their rhubarb won first prize and a best in show rosette for nits, fruits and vegetables!

In addition, they won two more firsts and three seconds for various herbs, and a first for a felt mask in the toy category.  Yay, Abby's family!

After that, we wandered the showroom to see what other categories there were that people had entered.  Our happiness was soured somewhat by a man who was very rude to Abby after she accidentally brushed past him, but not for long!

This year the province is celebrating its 150th birthday, and so all the theme categories had a birthday theme.

After the showroom, we watched some of the cow judging.

Then, we went to go see some of the animals.

The pigs

The goats

The sheep

The cows

We paused for a minute, because it was very hot out, on some hay in the cow barn.

Here are some more sheep.

We watched a sheep shearing demonstration.  The sheep didn't seem very happy.

Look at the size of this ox!

2200 pounds!?!

See this fuzzy thing?  It's actually a rabbit.

Then, we went to the room that was all about yarn and weaving, and spinning wool.

After that, there wasn't much else to see, except for the quilters' room, which cost $2 that Abby didn't have.  We went home.
