Admission is free but we are encouraging every child to bring along his or her “Treasured Teddy or other Stuffed Friend” to be eligible to enter into a draw for something really special, sponsored by Jim & Karla Stonham from Peak Alliance Realty.  So head to the Peak Realty tent before 2:30 to put in your child’s free ballot to win.

  • Mary Maxim is sponsoring a prize for the Most Creatively Dressed Stuffed Animal. The judging will take place at approximately 2:45 at the Kiwanis Tent.
  • TopRock Construction is sponsoring a Teddy Bear Art Contest for children up to age 8.  Have your child draw/paint/colour a picture of a Teddy Bear, put the name and age of the artist on the back, along with one adult contact name & phone number, and bring it to the Kiwanis Tent upon arrival at the fairgrounds. 

And to add to the fun, St. John Ambulance will be there to perform Medical Check-ups on the Teddy Bears and The Glass Slipper Company will be there to entertain.  The Paris Branch of Brant County Libraries will also have a craft area.

There will be an Ice Cream Truck, as well as a Snack Stand with pre-packaged snacks and beverages for cash purchase.

Prizes for the games and other events taking place on-site are being donated by Mario’s Pizza, Cheesecake on the Go, Rosie’s Ice Cream Shop, the Kiwanis Club of Paris-Brant and Original Kettlecorn.

This is an outdoor event, but we have use of an indoor space, if the weather doesn’t cooperate.  You may want to bring your own chairs or blankets.
