The Gleichen Fall Fair and Parade was held on Sat. Aug. 22nd and came off as a roaring success.
The Parade was fantastic with the Mounties in their Red Serge leading. Then came the Piper and the Drummer. From there the entries were strung out for quite a way, with dignitaries in the convertibles, a number of floats from the surrounding area, horse and riders, kids with their wheels and the entries for the bed tournament, there was a few older vehicles from the show & shine and finally quite a number of Fire Dept equipment from the surrounding communities.
The Show & Shine had a full field of entries. Maybe even more than they thought they would get. Sure was a lot of gleaming paint and chrome. The entries varied from quite old, fully restored, to somewhat newer but completely restored in cars, trucks and farm tractors.
The Fair itself had good crowds and were quite busy throughout the day.
All in all it was a very successful event and people are already asking what we are going to do for next year. BIGGER AND BETTER!
