London, Ontario – September 14th, 2017:
Western Fair opened its gates early yesterday for children with special-needs, and their families, to experience the fair in an environment tailored just for them. Many guests come for the sights, sounds and smells of the Fair, but for some the giant Midway, bustle of busy vendors, strolling performers, smells of the farm and crowds of eager fairgoers is not the ideal way to enjoy the annual fall tradition.
In its second year Day of Dreams was a unique opportunity for youngsters, designed to extend the fun of the annual Fair to those who may not otherwise experience it. Some children experienced the thrill of going on their first ride while others enjoyed a unique day out with family, an opportunity to create many positive experiences between friends, siblings and families.
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.
With the support of presenting sponsor Roy Inch and Sons over 130 children aged three to twelve had the opportunity to make lasting memories, 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. Entertainment included Cutest Show on Earth, Doo Doo the Clown, mascots, the Flying Fools High Dive Show, and Cowboy Fred and C-more Country Corral in the Down on the Farm in the Park.
Through the day the Western Fair welcomed approximately 354 guests to Day of Dreams.
