Home, Hobby and Horticulture Show draws near

We’re hoping that people in Ponoka, both urban and rural, will enter.” Lauraine Weir

Organizers of The Home, Hobby and Horticulture Show held their final preparatory meeting on July 17 and they are excited to once again present the show to the community.

“We’re hoping that people in Ponoka, both urban and rural, will enter,” said Lauraine Weir, Ponoka Agricultural Society president.

Entrees cost $2 per category for adults and $1 for youth. However, the most the show will charge is $10. “You can enter as many things as you want,” said Weir.

She added that those who do not want to enter the show are encouraged to come anyway and experience the fun classes taking place, ranging from making freezer jam, hobby horses, candy pulls and silk cocoon unraveling.

The classes take place Aug. 23 and also offered are two bouts of agility dog performances, 11 a.m. and 4 p.m.

The Home, Hobby and Horticulture Show is held Aug. 22 and 23 at the Ponoka Legion. The Legion is also hosting a Friday supper between 5:30 and 7 p.m. and Saturday lunch, complete with pie and ice cream.
