Summerland will showcase its agricultural heritage at the Summerland Fall Fair on Sept. 6 and 7.

The following day, agricultural exhibits will be set up at the Summerland Curling Club.

While the Friday evening festivities last year were held on Main Street, this year the events have been moved to Memorial Park.

MacDonald said 30 farmers will have produce on display at the tailgate party, including five beverage producers.

In addition, the event will feature plenty of activity for children, including horseback rides and ATV rides, face painting and the pioneer workshop.

The zucchini race on Friday evening will feature zucchinis with wheels attached, racing on a track similar to a pinewood derby race track.

The zucchini race was first introduced in last year’s fall fair.
