A parade just for families during Fall Fair in Barriere

Start Getting Ready For The 2012 North Thompson Fall Fair & Rodeo

It’s never too early to start thinking about the Fall Fair Family Parade (it used to be called the Children’s Parade).  After all, it takes time to figure out how to decorate the wagon, or bike, or stroller, or scooter.  And then, there’s figuring out what to wear… will you need to make costumes for the kids?  Or for their pets?  Yes, there’s lots to think about between now and the parade.

There will be ribbons and prizes for the best decorated tricycle, bicycle, motorized unit (such as a scooter, or perhaps a lawnmower), wagon, and stroller; as well as the best dressed cowboy, cowgirl, super hero, child and pet, child on horse, and best costume in general; and finally, one more prize for the best group on a float.

Why not call the family together for a fun discussion to start planning the best costume and decorations for the 2012 Family Parade.

The Family Parade is on Monday, Sept. 3; entries are to gather at Barriere Secondary School by 9:30 a.m., judging at 10 a.m.,  with the parade starting off at about 10:30 a.m.  Those who don’t want to actually participate in the parade, are encouraged to come out and watch the parade, while cheering for the adults and kids who are participating in this fun family event.
