First time in three years for Timmins Fall Fair

Organizers of the Timmins Fall Fair are in their third year of working on this weekend’s event that has been on hold during the pandemic.

Porcupine Agricultural Society president Rock Whissell says all the usual attractions will be in and around the Mountjoy Arena.  That includes the chickens, turkeys, pigs, lambs and rabbits raised by children through the Grower Program.

And a new attraction is a mini tractor pull.

“Kids go on a little tractor and they pedal and a weight follows them, just like a regular tractor pull,” Whissell explains. “But it’s really interesting to see the kids.”

That’s for kids four to 13 years old.

The farmers market is staying at its new Riverside Dr. location, freeing up room outside the arena for the Timmins Festival and Events Committee to offer musical entertainment.

“The tent will be set up,” says Whissell. “You’ll be able to go sit in there, have – Full Beard is going to be there, so you’ll be able to have one of those and then there’s also a few food vendors as well. So you’ll be able to go sit, have a sandwich, a hamburger and watch some local live music.”

The full schedule is on the Fall Fair Facebook page.
