FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The 74th North Peace Fall Fair had good attendance over the weekend, despite mother nature throwing a wrench in their plans.

According to North Peace Fall Fair president, Bruce Christensen, a little over 3,000 people showed up for the event on Saturday, despite the rainy weather later in the day.

He notes that Sunday ended up being a free entry day for the fair attendees but was eventually shut down early because of the weather.

The event, which was put together in only five weeks, took place from August 20th to 22nd.

Christensen thanks the volunteers and members of the committee for the amount of work everyone put into the fair. Normally, they start planning and start sending letters out in January or February.
