The sun shone on hundreds of visitors who came out to enjoy a family fun day on the grounds of the manor house last month. Though the Fair opened at 10am the activities really got going when the Kalamalka Highlanders made an entrance. (One of the pipers was visiting from Scotland and was very impressed with the venue and all it has to offer).
Vendors included wine from Edge of the Earth Winery, beautiful glass from Kelly Glass, delicious cheese from Terroir Cheese, wonderful products from The Soap Garden, Spices & Garlic from BC Buds Garlic, Bird Boxes from Ken Cuffe, Wooden Jewellry & Fruit from Dylan Olafson & Sandy Metzler’s Food 4 U preserves etc.
Delicious food from Oh Natural Foods, That Donut Guy & Mobile Munchies was very much appreciated.
Then the Vikings invaded! Showing off their traditional viking combat skills this talented group showed us the different weapons used in the time of the vikings. Dressed to fit the part they put on demonstrations that included one on one combat with axes, spears, swords and knives. Even an archery demonstration. The kids even got an opportunity to get in the act with foam ‘swords’. This was the Kelowna based group (The Ulfhethnar) has appeared at Fintry but, judging from the crowds reaction, it won’t be the last.
Thank you to everyone who made the Fair a wonderful memory.
