8 days until 70 acres transforms into annual Western Fair
August 31st, 2017 – London, Ontario: Once a year London watches as 70 acres of pavement and parking lot transform into the annual Western Fair, ready to welcome the community to makes memories throughout the 10 day run of the 142 year-old tradition. Parking spots become midway, parks become pastures, the racetrack welcomes demo derby and buildings becomes barns.
Although the transformation seemingly happens overnight there are countless hours, people, participants, preparation and planning that goes into the Fair which leads to hours of enjoyment, thousands of prizes won, rides riden, lights lit, entertainment seen and Fair food consumed.
