Western Fair opened its gates early today for children with special-needs, and their families, to experience the fair in an environment tailored just for them.

Day of Dreams is a new, unique opportunity for youngsters, designed to extend the fun of the annual Fair to those who may not otherwise experience it. With Western Fair District staff volunteering their time, and the support of partner North American Midway Entertainment, Spectra Venue Management and Food Services & Hospitality and our sponsors the event was a huge success.

“It’s the perfect way to help create lifelong memories for those who might have otherwise missed out,” Kris Dinel, Chief Business Development Officer, Western Fair District.  With the support of partner North American Midway Entertainment, presenting sponsor Roy Inch & Sons and media sponsor London Free Press children aged three to twelve had the opportunity to experience midway rides, without line-ups, and be entertained by the best acts the Fair has to offer, minus the hustle and bustle of crowds, including Little Ray’s Reptile Zoo, Doo Doo the Clown, the XPogo and the iFlip team. “Everyone at Roy Inch & Sons Service Experts is thrilled to be partnering with Western Fair to make this day special for all the children.  This day stands for exactly what Roy Inch & Sons Service Experts believes in; community, compassion, and a little help to make someone else’s day,” explained Peter Inch, General Manager of Roy Inch & Sons Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing.

In partnership with Spectra Venue Management and Food Services & Hospitality the Western Fair was delighted to provide all guests with a free, lunch along with their admission, rides, entertainment and a stuffed toy to take home.

Through the day the Western Fair welcomed approximately 200 guests to Day of Dreams.
