Do you or your kids have caged birds like pigeons, canaries, or finches? If so, consider entering them in the Fall Fair this year. Section 16 and 17 are where you want to look in the catalog. Section 16 is strictly for pigeons, and there are many different types as you will see when you look down the list of breeds they have categories for.
Section 17 is for all the other types of caged birds, and the list includes canaries, budgerigars, cockatiels, finches, love birds, parakeets, doves, quail and one category for all other foreign birds. Having lots of entries makes the bird barn an interesting and colourful display to walk through for fair-goers.
For a complete list of categories and rules, pick up a copy of the North Thompson Fall Fair and Rodeo Catalog at the Star/Journal, or at the Fall Fair office in the IDA mall (next to Armour Mt. Bookkeeping and Gallery) opening Aug. 6.
