Fraser Heights festival

Circus comes to Fraser Heights fair

Annual event brings family fun to North Surrey this Friday.

For the 18th year, an intersection in North Surrey will transform into a pedestrian fairground this week.

The annual Fraser Heights Country Fair will place June 24 from 5-9 p.m. at Fraser Heights Village, 160 Street and 108 Avenue.

Entertainment will be provided by Vancouver Circus School’s Sky High Trampoline Team and their professional division, The Inner Ring Circus. Their roving performers will include an object manipulation specialist, character stilt-walkers and jugglers.

Visitors can get in on the circus act too – the Red Fox Active Recreational Program will a provide hands-on circus training area so visitors can try stilt-walking, diablo, juggling, pogo sticks and other activities.

Among other entertainment: The BobCats will play rock and roll tunes from the ’50s to the ’80s, and the Black Belt Academy will perform 20 minutes of karate demos at the top of each hour.

Fairgoers will be able to whirl around in a 30-foot merry-go-swing, saddle up at the pony rides, play nine-hold mini-golf and scale a portable climbing wall.

Thanks to the staff, students and parents of Erma Stephenson School, this year’s fair will also include a country store, cakewalk and carnival games.

To round things off, the Guildford Lions Club will hold a chuckwagon barbecue with hot dogs and corn on the cob.
