I have been anticipating the arrival of the annual fall fair to Dawson Creek since I got here ~~ and the time has come. Last night I was eager to take in the Chuckwagon races. Here there was a show of Western and World Class Professional Chuckwagon racers. I have to say I have never realized the importance nor the difficulty that an out-rider has in this sport. Needless to say there were already vendors set up on the mid way….food, food and more food. From what I saw there was 2 watering holes which are going to have nightly entertainment. One cannot forget that tomorrow morning is a fall parade, which is going to be huge and great for the families. Did I mention how exciting these Chuckwagon Races are!! It is non-stop action packed with horses, cowboys, outriders, dirt, dust and cheering fans. If you are in the Peace Region be sure to come and check out the fall fair in Dawson Creek.
