The Lundar Fair’s Horse show saw many competitors on June 8 and 9. Pictured: nineteen-year-old Brianne Persoage won first place in her age group for Hunter Over Fence astride Anna Lucia, an arabian steed on June 8.

Celebrating 66 years, the annual Lundar Fair featured its Sixty-First Beef Show and Sale, horse shows, a colour dance party, a parade, petting zoo, $1,000 jackpot Heifer Show, the fifty-first Miss Interlake Pageant, tractor pulls, and much more entertainment for folks of all ages on June 8 and 9.

The Home Living Section of Lundar Fair was set up at the curling rink and featured exhibits of sewing projects, crocheting, knitting, horticulture hand crafts, baking, canning and preserving, cut flowers, potted plants and more, according to its extremely detailed brochure, outlining the many competitions and categories for exhibitors.

Its annual Miss Interlake Pageant invited young women to compete in a friendly competition to determine who would best serve as an official representative for the Iterlake at other festivals and events during the reigning year. Miss Interlake will also be eligible to run for Miss Manitoba. Judges look for a young lady from the Interlake to display grace and poise with their communication and people skills, according to its website.

Contestants are judged in 4 different categories: the talent competition, personal interview, sportswear/dress review and impromptu speech. Confidence, poise, talent, grooming, personality and intellect are important qualities on which contestant will receive points by the judges and every contestant that participates will receive gifts put on display at the Home Living Section during the fair.
