The Amazing Alberni Valley
Alberni Fall Fair
The annual Alerni Valley Fall Fair is one of those events I dream about all year as a photographer. There's such a wide range of activities that there is not just something at the fair for all ages, but also for all styles of photographers. From the parade to lights in the evening, sunsets in the background, musical acts, horse shows. lumber jack sports, and exhibitions, it literally becomes a playground for me to shoot and experiment.

Annual Fall Fair Parade.
The Annual Fall Fair features the Alberni Valley's best known parade. Every year the fair holds a parade on the Saturday moring of the four day event. While the fair grounds officially open on a Thursday, the parade is traditionally held on Saturday morning.
The main stage rocks with live music all day and evening during the fair. The musical caliber is always top notch and is well attended.
Riders, games, food .. what more could you ask for at a fair. The fairway is what families come for, allowing the kids to check out some very cool rides. There are several adult rides as well, so there is much to enjoy for all family members.
Logger Sports. Held on Sunday only, there's no better way to end the fair than with cheering on some of the best logger competitors in the world.
