Porcupine Fall Fair Fun!

Nice Donkey! It’s something Shrek might say, but visiting the donkey was one of the many attractions for sight seers at the annual Porcupine Fall on the weekend. Among those who visited the live animal displays were Marissa Baril, left, and Kayla Mason. Which way is up? Jillian Nemis of Timmins might have trying to figure that out as she enjoyed a “spin” on the Gyro Scope at the Porcupine Fall Fair on the weekend. The gyro device was one of the popular ‘hair raising’ attractions at the fair set up by Climb ‘N’ Fun, a Timmins based entertainment venture. Just hanging around! Seven-year-old Bailey Whissel of the McKinnon novice hockey club was one of many youngsters who tried the endurance “hang-on” device at the Porcupine Fall Fair on the weekend. The device was set up for youngsters to try to out-do each other in how long they could simply hang onto a bar while suspended above the ground. The event was a fundraiser for the McKinnon hockey club. Cutting it close. Perry Gauthier of Sudbury showed off his model flying skills at the Porcupine Fall Fair on the weekend. Gauthier was on hand as part of the Science Timmins display at the fall fair and delighted many youngsters by flying robotic model aircraft inside the Mountjoy Arena.
