Saanich Fair 2016

Theme of the fair was:

EGGSTREME FUN AT THE FAIR”

FEATURING
EGGS

 Convenor: Lavinia Stevens

How do you tie alpacas and llamas in with eggs?? You make stuff up of course! We had a great time trying to convince the public that alpacas and llamas not only lay eggs but build their own nests. Most of you figured out there might be some tom-foolery going on when you got to "Amazing Camelid Fact #187" and read about the spiral horn that cria's grow in utero! Our apologies to those of you who left our display still scratching your heads - we hope we made you giggle.
 

A note of thanks to our Convenor: Lavinia Stevens has served as Convenor for the Llama and Alpaca display at the fair for many years. This is a volunteer position that demands a great deal of organizing and coordinating, great people skills and a lot of patience. 2016 was Lavinia's last year in this capacity but we hope to continue to see her smiling face as a participant in many more fairs to come!

We would like to encourage any alpaca & llama farmers out there to consider taking part in the 2017 Saanich Fair. Whether you bring your animals or just set up a product display or information booth about your farm, we can guarantee you will be surrounded by a supportive, encouraging group.
