(HARROW, ON) – Traffic was at a standstill entering Harrow as the parade opening the 163rd edition of the fair wound its way along King Street and down McAffee Street. A highlight of the festival season, the fair offers the best of both agricultural competitions and a midway for all levels of risk.
