Fall fairs can be found scattered across the countryside throughout September and October but southwestern Ontario’s biggest and best — London’s Western Fair — opened its gates to the public on Friday (Sept. 6).
Celebrating 138 years of tradition, fair organizers welcomed representatives from the Forest City’s "red ribbon" champion teams — the London Nationals, Knights and Lightning — to perform the ceremonial bell ringing to officially kick-off the 2013 edition of the fair.

Later in the evening, the first of a week-long procession of performers, the band Hanson took over the main stage, filling the air with their pop-rock sound to the delight of a very appreciative crowd.
Open daily Sept 6-15, a full list of attractions and schedule of events can be found at www.westernfairdistrict.com.
