It is time once again to have some chili contests and petting zoos meet in the same place.

That is according to Cochrane Agricultural Society Secretary/Manager Sophie Moreau, who says this year’s annual fall fair will see a chili contest, with a few additions from past years.

Moreau says the event, ongoing since 1913, is one of the town’s most anticipated yearly events known for its wide range of contests and competitions.

She says there will be a variety of activities for children and parents to enjoy at the fair, including a pet show that will take place on the opening night.

The Cochrane Annual Fall Fair will take place Friday, September 8th from 6:00pm to 9:00pm and then Saturday, September 9th from 10:00am to 5:00pm.
