Get ready to pack up the pumpkins, assess your apple pie recipe, process the peaches and choose your choicest chickens. It’s time for the Creston Valley Fall Fair.

On Sept. 7 and 8, the 94th edition of the fair promises to attract a great selection of entries that will include the finest of local livestock, farm and garden produce, baking, preserves, crafts and youth exhibits.

“Eat it! Grow it! Show it!” The theme of the 2012 fair says it all. Creston Valley Fall Fair is intended to celebrate the harvest and give residents and visitors alike a snapshot of the bounty we are fortunate to enjoy.

Entry forms can be picked up at Creston Valley Chamber of Commerce and cost to enter is only $1 per 10-item entry sheet.

Completed forms must be dropped off at the chamber by Sept. 3 at 4 p.m. Entries must be dropped off at Creston and District Community Complex on Sept. 6 between 6 and 8 p.m.

The 2012 fall fair opens to the public from 2-7 p.m. on Sept. 7 and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sept. 8. Awards will be presented on Saturday at 5 p.m.

Live music and entertainment will be provided throughout the event, and commercial exhibitors and vendors will complement the entry displays.
