SCUGOG: There is just over one week left until the 161st edition of the Port Perry Fair, and this year will bring several great new events to the annual agricultural celebration.
Headlining the new attractions at the Fair are Chuckwagon Races, held on Sunday, Sept. 6, starting at 1 p.m., presented by Ontario Chuckwagon Racing. Teams of horses will thunder around the Fairgrounds in a thrilling competition that brings a little bit of the wild west to Port Perry.
As well, on Monday, Sept. 7, the Extreme Rodeo returns to the Fair at 11:45 a.m. after making a sensational debut in 2014.
There are no shortage of familiar favourites on the schedule for the Fair, starting with the Truck and Tractor Pull at 7 p.m., on Saturday, Sept. 5.
Earlier in the day on Saturday, the Team K9 Dog Show will dazzle audiences at 1 and 4 p.m., with Lawn Tractor Pulls slated for 2 p.m.
Sunday features a wide range of livestock shows throughout the day, as well as an extrication demo by the Scugog Fire Department at 1 p.m.
As the evening sets in on Sunday, the Demolition Derby will roar to life, starting at 6 p.m.
Livestock shows continue on Monday, with the Family Rodeo scheduled to get underway at 10:15 a.m., and the Horse Pull at 2:30 p.m.
