Skeena Valley Fall Fair is cancelled


This year's Skeena Valley Fall Fair is cancelled.

The news came from their community facebook page saying the event is cancelled because of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Acting President Michelle Williams said right now they dont think the event will happen in a different format this year

" With the COVID and all the restrictions  and the lack of  sponsorships now, i dont feel we will be able to get  enough sponsorship in time to do anything really."

Before the pandemic, the fair was set to happen between September 4th to 6th with the theme celebrating 50 years. 

This year the fair at the thornhill community grounds would be celebrating fifty years  and to mark that milestone the rganizers wanted to provide midway rides and other attractions.
