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.
