Slide show: Rodeo, racing pigs and baby chicks at Chilliwack’s annual country fair

Chilliwack Heritage Park was a busy place this weekend as folks flocked to the 147th annual Chilliwack Fair to take in the sights, sounds and scents of the annual country event.

The smell of fried doughnuts and barbecue filled the air as people wandered in and out of the red barns housing 4-H competitions, various farm animals, home and garden displays, live entertainment, and activities for people of all ages.

Each evening finished with live music and the annual Chilliwack Rodeo, presented by the B.C. Rodeo Association and Chilliwack Rodeo Association.
