If the Mayans have it right, you definitely Want to Get to the 2012 Markham Fair

By Janice Lee

All end of the world jokes aside, the 2012 Markham Fair certainly has something for everyone, so do your planning accordingly, as you, your family, and friends do not want to miss out!  There are four action-packed days of the Markham Fair, and surely there is something here for you to take part in, whether being a child, teen, adult, or senior!

You will not have to worry, because there are some events that happen all four days of the Markham Fair, just make sure to check out the schedule to see when and where they may be taking place.  From miniature to enormous working breeds, be sure to watch the Cavalcade of Horses trot before your eyes.     New this year, Elephant Thoughts is a creative hands on experience where you get to learn the ins and outs of a polar bear, leatherback turtle, or harlequin duck!  Looking for some excitement, head over to the Jump action show, where dance crews take stage, and Parkour leaps to limitless bounds.  Going strong all four days to celebrate Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee is the Diamond Jubilee Tea Room which will feature scones, finger sandwiches, and fruit!  Be sure to dress according to Fair weather, but do bring your dress hat or fascinator if you desire.  Be sure to check out the Make your Own Fascinator/Crown area in the Tea Room to create your own royal moment! On the weekend, free face painting by the fantastically talented Picasso and friends in the Entertainment Tent.  Also on the weekend, if you are between the ages of 6 and 106 check out the Body Zorbs area where you can flip and flop, and not feel a thing!    At dusk, be sure to raise your eyes to the sky where you will be amazed by fireworks (Thursday, Friday, & Saturday only)!
