How’d he do that? Kids can’t believe what they just saw as magician Chris Gowen delights folks with his magical abilities. Gowen’s tricks were a fun addition to the trade fair. Photo by Jeffrey Heyden-Kaye

Which way is up? Another fun part of the trade fair was the Mirage Virtual Reality Experience with kids getting first-hand experience with the company’s many virtual reality games. Here Dean Ruter tries his hands, and eyes, at a space invaders type game. Photo by Jeffrey Heyden-Kaye

Classic beauty: This classic, and rare, 1956 Meteor was just one of the many classical vehicles on display at the curling rink during the trade fair. This car was restored by Ponoka’s Reflections on 66 and is highly valued. Photo by Jeffrey Heyden-Kaye
