North Thompson Fall Fair Family Parade great for the kids

Once again the Thompson Valley Players sponsored and hosted the North Thompson Fall Fair Family Parade which was held last Monday during the Labour Day weekend.

There were many different categories for everyone to compete in, all the way from Decorated Tricycle to Best Dressed Super Hero, Costumed Child on Horse, and of course Best Float.

Participants included: Mason Woglegmouth, Missy Kjellstrom, Claire Bourque, Hailie Johnson, Taylor Harris, Josie Crossman, Charlotte Crossman, Dominic Gobey, Mia Gobey, Aiden Murphy, Cameron Murphy, and Liam Murphy.

Barriere Fire Chief Ashley Wohlgemouth, Shawn Moore and the Barriere Fire Department were thanked for bringing down the fire trucks to participate in the parade as well.

The North Thompson Fall Fair and Rodeo Association Ambassadors were on-site to assist with photos and help with ribbon presentations. Brent Hamblin did the photographer honours.
