The pandemic kept many events from happening over the past two years and that included the small town fairs.

Boissevain and Killarney fairs were held June 24-26 and from all accounts people were ready to get back out and take in their local fair.

“Everything considered it went pretty good” said Russell Moffat with the Killarney Agricultural Society.

“I think the gate was up from when we held our last fair two years ago. The last of the events took place on Sunday because the chuck wagon racing was cut off on Friday because of the weather. We had quite a few people out Sunday which was nice to see.”


Boissevain’s fair took place Saturday afternoon and Sunday. The weather had an impact on Saturday but conditions improved for Sunday.

Nicole Fordyce is secretary with the Turtle Mountain Agricultural Society and she said it was wonderful to see everyone back on the fair grounds.

“Saturday we had some rain showers and that caused a few problems but we were still able to have everything as planned the heavy horses went and we lucked out and had a beautiful fire works show at the end of the day.”
