On August 11, the Lougheed Agricultural Society held their 89th Annual Fair.
A pancake breakfast opened the day, followed by a parade. Iris Williams, who was in the parade, said there were at least 50 entries and that overall the weekend “went over really good.” She added that there was beautiful weather and all the events and exhibits were well attended.
Other activities to keep people entertained included in the day’s events were baseball games, bench exhibits, beer gardens, children’s entertainment and a horse show.

A barbecue supper was held for everyone to enjoy and a dance that went until 3 a.m.
Bench exhibits filled the curling rink showcasing a diverse range of talents from people in and around Lougheed. Some of the exhibit winners were: Gayle Moss of Sedgewick with her floral arrangement for a coffee table; Kaybree Mazure of Hardisty for the entry she made of recycled articles; Keith Moss of Sedgewick for his three green tomatoes; Darrell Hinky of Hardisty in original handcraft for his cow; Elisabeth Redekop of Lousana for her decorated cake; Pat MacKinnon of Killam for her six pieces of chocolate fudge; Delores Coastes of Lougheed for her chokecherry jelly; Marg Faryna of Edmonton for her pickled eggs and Emma Hasnam of Daysland for her ladybug novelty shaped Rice Krispie.
