Markham Fair has always been a whirlwind of events and over the years some of those events have remained the same, however, as would be expected many have changed with the times. The Fair really has become more fun than ever and without a doubt the crowds of today can participate in so much more than the crowds from a century ago.
The Freestyle Moto-Cross (FMX) bike demonstration draws kids and adults alike as they watch in amazement while the riders work their bikes with expert precision and it’s never a surprise to hear the fans roaring with enthusiasm as they watch the Monster Truck Madness show or the Demolition Derby.
Spoiler alert! It is absolutely adorable to watch the little ones, with all their strength and determination, compete in the Children’s Pedal Pull and no worries because even if they don’t pedal their way to first place – everyone gets a prize!! Naturally, the Fireworks show that takes place at Dusk on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday of the Fair is always a crowd pleaser. This spectacular show is never a disappointment!
With Markham Fair always improving as each year passes you can’t help but wonder and look forward to what the Fair has in store for the future!
