As the 118th Interior Provincial Exhibition gets underway, we have a few tips to enjoy the fair. Be safe, have fun!
The fairgrounds are well-maintained, but do wear comfortable shoes suitable for grass and gravel.
Stay hydrated! Temperatures are still summer-like, and there are plenty of vendors in the food court area to keep you nourished.
Keeping track of your family members: children, seniors, and any one else who may wander away can be registered at Kid’s World and receive a wristband for extra reassurance.
First aid is located at Gate 1, in the front side of Hassen Hall. The station is staffed at all times with St. John Ambulance personnel. Fire department EMTs are also on call to provide further medical assistance.
Lost and found: items may be taken to the IPE office at 3010 Wood Avenue.
West Coast Amusements looks after the midway rides and games, please follow safety directions from their team.
