It’s an old-fashioned fall fair that’s so much fun, last year it was named B.C.’s best festival.

So get ready for the 32nd annual Country Celebration at Campbell Valley Regional Park this weekend in South Langley.

The Sept. 17 and 18 celebration runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days.

It’s a family friendly event featuring live music, a farmer’s market, artisans, wagon rides, and a funky freaky vegetable contest – bring an entry.

There will also be clydesdale horses, animals and a children’s area.

And grub, lots of great grub, served up by vendors.

Other activities include cow milking demos, circus skills workshops, pony rides, kite-making, storytelling, and llama obstacle courses.

Featured performers include Mr. Fireman and the Flying Monkeys Horn Orchestra, Maria in the Shower, Mike Battie, and the Wild West Country Dancers.

Admission is $2 per person, and $1 for children aged 7 to 12. Seniors and kids under six are free – as is anyone wearing a costume.

To get there follow 200 Street south to 8 Avenue. Turn left and follow the bend in the road and turn left into the visitor parking lot.

The celebration is presented by Metro Vancouver. For more information, visit www.metrovancouver.org. Search “Country Celebration.”
