Even though mommy-and-me matching outfit fashion dates back to the 1900s, it’s a trend that has yet to go out of style. It’s always a delight to see mothers and their kids wearing matching clothes, and it’s a fun and creative way for moms to dress up their mini-mes.
The annual Fair, which will be held from August 20 to September 5, is British Columbia’s longest running and largest ticketed event. It is definitely a family tradition and part of our summer routine.
Make the PNE Fair your End-of-Summer Tradition with *can’t miss* attractions and entertainment including the SuperDogs, Chinese Acrobats, High Dive Show, Dueling Pianos, Agriculture Displays, Drag Shows, Cooking Demonstrations, Pyro Musical, Exhibits, Home Showcase, and the return of Summer Night Concerts!
