Date: 2009-05-20

Description: The fair grounds are home to the annual agriculture fair, which has been ongoing for more than 60 years. In 2008-2009 NKDF provided funding assistance to build the horse barn and upgrade the exhibit hall. For 2009-2010, Lakes District Fall Fair Association will use this approved funding to upgrade the exhibit hall and horse barn as well as upgrading the washroom, and constructing a first aid and office building. By offering improved facilities, the Association hopes to create economic benefits by increasing the number of attendees, events, and expenditures to the Lakes District.
