There have been a number of Langley residents opting to visit or even work at The Fair at the PNE this year, including Julia Ireland.

Watch for her, she stars in Safari Adventure with Action Austin at the Fair at the PNE.

Reid Anderson of Langley took part in the recent beef and swine club events, where he auctioned off his grand champion hog at the PNE’s 4-H Festival.

Likewise, Langley’s Emily Beattie auctioned off her reserve champion hog, as well. The animal was bought by Christie Kerr on behalf of the PNE.

Six-year-old Kailey, three-year-old Rylan, and five-year-old Braden took a spin aboard a life-sized Monopoly car at Toytopia at this year’s Fair at the PNE.

These are just a few of the activities held at the Fair at the PNE, which runs until Monday, Sept. 4.
