Navan Fair to wrap up under sunny skies
By Fred Sherwin
Aug. 11, 2019

Country fair enthusiasts will get their last chance to enjoy the Navan Fair today as the weather forecast is calling for plenty of sunshine and a high of 27 degrees.

Today's highlights include the Heavy Horse Pull and Western Horse Show at 11 a.m.; the Rock the Arts puppet show at 11:30 a.m., 12:30 p.m. and 2 p.m.; and the Ultimutts stunt dog show at 1:30 p.m. and 3 p.m.

Live music enthusiasts can enjoy a triple bill under the Domes featuring The Richmind Ramblers, The Irish Descendants and the Washboard Union with no additional cover charge.

The Fair has suffered through a mixed baf of weather over the past three days. The rain held off long enough on Saturday to allow for the Navan Fair parade to go ahead without somuch as a drop. This years parade included a number of pipe and drum bands, the first ever appearance of the Ottawa Shriners in their biplanes; and a procession of antique tractors.

The gates open at 8 a.m. this morning. The midway will run from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. The concert under the Domes will start at 1 p.m. Admission is $12 for adults; $10 for seniors 65 and over; and $3 for children 12 and under.
