The anticipated Reston Fair took place last weekend and was a massive hit. The community was buzzing with activities starting Friday with the weekly Chase the Ace held at Rest’in Inn with the pot jumping a record $1,254.00 bringing the pot to $24,804.00 with only 12 cards left.
Country Blend filled the Reston Memorial Theatre with traditional and gospel country tunes with a large crowd attending. The show was put on by the Reston memorial Theatre Board.
Engines could be heard tearing through the Reston Fair grounds as the Lawn Tracker Races commenced, unfortunately the races had to end early due to an incident. Luckily the rider was ok and was sent to the hospital for precautionary reasons. Later that evening crowds returned to the grounds to end the evening with fireworks and mark the official start of the Reston Fair. Kurt Schiltroth did a wonderful job and thank you to Reston Place for sponsoring the firework show.
Saturday was jam packed at the Reston Fair grounds starting with family fun put on by the Pipestone Albert Recreation Commission. Bouncy Castles, Zipline, Ninja Warrior Dome, Laser tag, Axe Throwing and more. The fun was endless! A Variety of booths and vendors were also there to take part in the annual Outdoor Market put on by the RM of Pipestone Dance Club.
As the warm day continued people could be seen gathering for refreshments at the Beer Gardens put on by the Reston Rec Plex Board and free entertainment was also available which made for a great time. As per tradition The RM of Pipestone Recreation Development Board organized a wonderful Cold Plate Supper enjoyed by all. As the evening rolled in so did the party. The Milkman’s Son were the Entertainment at this years Outdoor Dance brought to you by the Reston Rec Plex Board. The Band from Saskatchewan delivered us music ranging from classic rock to Country and much more. They truly delivered a great time!
Sunday was a beautiful day and a great way to end the weekend events. Reston and Area Early Learning Centre served up a delicious pancake breakfast at the RES centre before the big parade. Floats met at the RES parking lot before heading out through town. Kids could be seen gathering candy being tossed out from the creative floats. It was a hot one but that didn’t stop anyone, but the freezes being given out were much appreciated! The community is very happy to have the Fair back and look forward for years to come!
