Hometown Fair Announces Two Acts
With the Moose Jaw Hometown Fair just under a month away on June 21 - June 23 the exciting line-up of events planned for this year’s edition of the local family friendly fair is being announced.
The parade will be held the evening of June 20.
On Friday details were released about two of the acts coming to the fair.
K9 Stars Dog Show
For a third year running the highly popular K9 Stars show of performing dogs will be at the Hometown Fair with three acts daily.
“It has been really good and we have had a super response to them,” George Fowler general manager to ld MJ Independent.
Asked if repeating the act three years in the running wasn’t risky Fowler said “we will let the people decide. The dogs though are highly popular with everyone.
He spoke about advice he had received from the manager of a much bigger fair who let his dog show go only to regret it.
“One of the big fairs they went 12 years in a row with a dog show and then decided not to book a dog show and now they have lots of complaints for not getting them…if you ever get a dog show never give them up he told me.”
The unique thing about the K9 Stars is all of their dogs doing the tricks are rescue dogs and not purebreds but dogs saved from animal shelters and elsewhere and given a chance at life.
“I think it is good because these people really do care about the animals,” Fowler said, adding as part of their show the K9 Stars speak about pet adoption and giving animals a chance.
Following their appearance in Moose Jaw the K9 Stars are scheduled to perform at the Calgary Stampede.
Ride The Vibe - Motorcycle Stunt Show
This year the Hometown Fair is offering a motorcycle stunt show which allows spectators to get in really close to the action.
The stunts are going to amaze fairgoers both young and old alike, he said and as with everything at the Moose Jaw Hometown Fair it is geared as family entertainment and appeals to a wide range of ages.
There are plans for the motorcylce stunt show to run four times daily although all show times are yet to be finalized.
“We are a family friendly event and we try to make our entertainment family friendly as well,” Fowler stated.
Additionally all entertainment is free at the Moose Jaw Hometown Fair with your gate admission.
More entrertainment is to be announced in the near future.
