Like all Fall Fairs, the Warkworth Fair caters to family fun. And there are a number of events that spelled fun and family in no small way. There is the talent show in the arena ad the Midway rides plus lots of munchies for the whole family. But three events seemed to pull in kids at heart of every age.
The Farm Animal Petting Zoo
Since Warkworth is plop in the middle of farm country one might expect an animal petting area to be like bringing coal to Newcastle. As the photos below confirm, not so:
Celebrity Pig Races
Now this event was fraught with potential for stinky humor – and the MC did not disappoint. But this fair goer had trouble visualizing pigs racing. Dogs? yes. Horses? yes. Even rabbits, yes. But pigs, not so much – based on my Mom’s tales of the pigs wallowing in “the stew”. But the photos don’t lie:
Hot Diggity Dogs
Now this fair goer had the most fun watching the Hot Diggity Dogs. The Hot Diggity Dogs had put on a Frankford Ontario home show early in the Spring which was most entertaining. So when the “Hot Dogs” were announced as part of the Warkworth Fall Fair, this was an added reason to go to the show. And the group put on two very etertaining shows – at noon and then 2:30 in the afternoon:
Suffice it to say that the Hot Diggity Dogs put on a most pleasing show.
Given the quantity and quality of Family Fun to be found at the Warkworth Fall Fair – congratulations are due to the organizers.
