Thrills, spills, laughs and healthy competition at the annual North Thompson Fall Fair and Rodeo in Barriere

Annual fall fair event hosted thousands of visitors over the Labour Day weekend.

According to organizers of the 67th Annual North Thompson Fall Fair and Rodeo event in Barriere was a great success over the Labour Day Weekend. They say the rain didn’t seem to keep folks away, nor stop them from enjoy events that were held outside such as the lumberjack show.

Sloppy footing due to heavy rains provided spectators with a resounding “splat” when cowboys parted company with their broncs or bulls, all adding to the fast paced action and thrills of the BCRA Rodeo.
