The main event will take place Sunday, October 3rd 11:30am-3:30pm at the old Ioco Lawn Bowling Green (Ioco Rd. & 1st Ave.) in Port Moody. All ages will find something to enjoy at this FREE family event.

Highlights include:

Roving Performances - Watch juggling and magic tricks, try your hand at the unicycle and interact with the ghosts of Ioco past.

Old Time Music - Sing along to the banjo and ukelele, listen to the fiddler and barbershop quartet or sit back and enjoy some jazz.

Pony Rides - Travel old fashioned style on a pony.

Pie contest - Bake your favourite recipe and see if it can stand up to our discriminating judge. Prizes awarded for the top 3 entries.

Artisan Displays - See old time craftmanship with our wood turners, yarn doll maker, quilter, and weaver.

Apple Sampling - Taste a variety of apples brought by the BC Fruit Tasters. If you find one you like, you can buy your own tree.
