Description: The Lakes District Fall Fair grounds are home to the annual agriculture fair, which has been ongoing for more than 60 years. Lakes District Fall Fair Association (LDFFA) demonstrates a high standard of community leadership. In 2008-09 NKDF provided funding assistance to build the horse barn and upgrade the exhibit hall. In 2009 NKDF provided funding to assist with upgrades to the exhibit hall, the horse barn, the washroom, and construction of a first aid / office building. This funding approval is for assistance with the upgrades to the PERKA building, which is used for the Fall Fair Exhibition and RV storage, the drilling of a new well, and electrical upgrades to the Children's Festival area. Beneficiaries of this project are the residents of the Lakes District including the many events taking place on the fair grounds, bringing opportunities to attract visitors and expenditures to the area.
