This time of year fall fairs pop up everywhere and Owen Sound was no exception this weekend.
The 167th annual Owen Sound fall fair took place at Victoria Park right next to the YMCA Community Center and welcomed thousands of fair goers over the weekend.
President of the Owen Sound Agricultural Society Greg Hutchinson feels that fairs offer a glimpse into the life of local farmers.
"It's where your food comes from,"Hutchinson says, "it's a good way for people to see what it and what goes into the growing and harvesting."
He also highlights the experience members of 4-H groups get by competing in the fair competitions before heading to the larger competitions.
Hutchinson is pleased to see that attendance for the fair is still strong and continuing to grow.
