The Fair starts Thursday evening, September 19. Weather looks great. Heritage Square is ready to go, and there should be some great exhibits.
The sweet corn is still plentiful, so lots of steamed corn slathered in butter and salted to taste!
The fairgrounds are on Trinity Road (old Hwy 52) just south of 403 and Wilson (old Hwy 2) Hard to miss with the Ferris wheel standing tall. It is the last exit going west out of Ancaster on 403.
I'll try to get some pics.

There are close to 100 pics from the fair. Lots of interesting stuff there, as usual. The feature was IH Farmall letter series tractors and there was a good spread.
Great late summer weather, although a little warm today. One more day left. excellent crowds. They said Friday was a record!
First are of an amazing Bain wagon made in Woodstock, Ontario. The tail gate is a patented item, so I as told.

An interesting fence stretching display plus some unusual tools, and choo choo signals with lights and bells. The kids liked the bells!
Dad and I used to stretch fences using the Fergie tractor and a similar bar system. This was horse-era stuff. With a long stretch, you needed some oopmh!

The fence display and the next group of about a dozen tractors are owned by Mr. Egger from Dunnville. For some reason, no one can ever pin down where the Pacers were built. Tag always says Toronto. Ponys were made at the Bain wagon works in Woodstock.

There were some absolutely beautiful Cockshutts there. Made just up the road in Brantford!

More, more, more, more, more, and more.
In another life, I overhauled lots of those Massey-Fergusons. It is kinda funny to see people restoring them now, although they are a good-looking tractor. Some of them are pushing 60 years old!

A mixed bag here. Hmm? I guess there is no 59.
A bit out of sync, but that is Mr. Egger demonstrating the fence stretcher. There were kids by the bus load on Friday and they were watching this with some interest.

Bring out the artillery!
The last one is very interesting - a floor piece out of the old Hamilton works of International Harvester.
The rest tomorrow.
