Little Royal on this weekend

Walkerton | by Robyn Garvey  

164th Walkerton Little Royal underway

The Walkerton Little Royal Fair is taking place this weekend; this year‘s
theme is Harvest Memories.  This is the 164th year of the event.
The proud tradition is a celebration of the region’s rural roots and an opportunity to mix urban and rural together.
Walkerton Agriculture President Mike Dupuis welcomes everyone to come out and take in this family event.
Whether it is the team penning, the saddle show, the horse show, the chuck wagon races, the antique displays, the wine making classes or the kids mini tractor pull, he says there really is something for everyone.
There is also bouncy castles, a pet show, piglets, cattle, horses andchickens to greet and even an agriculture magic show.
If you ever wanted to try your hand at dairy farmer, now is your chance. An artificial cow is on display for those who want to see what it takes to milk a cow. 
There is no shortage of food either, between the Kinsmen wing night and the hot roast beef dinner, Dupuis says no one will leave the Fair hungry.
The Walkerton Little Royal Fair is the last Fall Fair in Ontario before November’s Toronto Royal Fair.
Admission is 8 dollars for a day pass, 5 dollars for students, 10 dollars for a weekend pass and a family pass is 20 dollars.
