The 2016 Burford Fair was a tremendous success this year!
Especially when it came to the First Ever Home Decorating Contest!
Showcasing the beauty of Burford, ON. and the passion Burfordians share when it comes to proudly supporting local initiatives and celebrating fall colours!
The Home Decorating Contest was themed as “Scarecrow Junction.” Anyone in the village of Burford, ON. or a 5km radius of downtown was eligible to enter, with winning prizes to be claimed including:
- First Place Winner awarded a ribbon, Gift Card of $100 value and a “Family Weekend Pass” to the fair!!
- Second Place Winner awarded a ribbon and a “1 Day Fair Pass”.
- Third Place Winner awarded a ribbon and a “1 Day Fair Pass”.
For the first ever contest having been held we had an amazing turnout with 10 entries! The judging and decision making was very hard, but after a great length of time three (3) winners were finally decided upon.
Congratulations to the 2016 Burford, ON. winners:
1st Place: Connie and Mitchell Reavely – 149 King St, Burford, ON.
2nd Place: Angela Henry – 93 King St. Burford, ON.
3rd Place: Warren and MaryAnn Bell – 387 Maple Ave. S. Burford, ON.
It was amazing to see the level of engagement and participation of the local community! Participation included initiatives from mom/daughter, husband/wife, grandma/grandson, kids, business’s, even youth and children from daycare.
This entire event was a tremendous honor to help sponsor and be a part of. I had a lot of fun meeting people, admiring all the decorations and building awareness of the Burford Fair.
A board of the winners and honorable mentions for all participants was on display at the fair and is shown in the video within this blog post. We had a professional photographer take pictures of all the displays.
The contest was sponsored by myself Realtor® Kim Bailey-Brown and The Burford Agricultural Society. Prizes donated by myself, the Burford Agricultural Society and Sandy Vandewalle.
Take a moment to look through the beauty of the contest entries.
Be sure to look for the same contest next year!
