The Western Fair occurs yearly (during the first half of September each year). It is a normal fair with the Midway, animals, art, food stalls, booths, etc. Everything you would expect a fair to be.
I even avoided the opportunity to buy the Wow absorbent towel - you know the one on TV where you are supposed to say Wow after you see it work. But we had sushi for lunch - they faked us out as it was no meat, but still tasted pretty good.
Each evening one can buy tickets to various headline acts. We went to Great Big Sea Tuesday night! The concert was great! I don't have any of their CD's, but I quite enjoyed the show they put on.
An Agricultural Fair, the WESTERN FAIR is held annually in London, Ontario. This year it's being helf September 5 to 14, 2008 at the Fairgrounds located 900 King Street and Dundas.
Apart from the Fair itself, the Western Fair Raceway has a Slot Machine facility. As of April, 2008, the facility contained 750 slot machines.
