GALLERY: Pig races, dinosaurs and lumberjacks at the 131st annual Cloverdale Country Fair

There’s lots to see and do at the Country Fair, on at the Cloverdale Fairgrounds until Monday evening

Organizers promised more family-friendly entertainment for the country fair than ever before this year — a tall promise, seeing as the fair has been running for more than 130 years.

Whether you want to check out a midway of games and rides, meet animals in the Agri-Zone, enjoy the lumberjack show, listen to B.C.’s best country music artists or eat the “best ribs in town” at Rib Fest, this fair has something for everyone.

Kids can also drive through a construction-themed course in go-karts, watch piglets race and learn to drive hobby-grade radio-controlled cars with the Outlaw RC club.
