Cobble Hill

This weekend is the annual Cobble Hill fall fair, located at the Cobble Hill fair grounds downtown Cobble Hill. Amazingly enough this will be the 99th fall fair for this town!
Cobble Hill is located between Mill Bay and Duncan - The population of Cobble Hill is about 15,000 and has been a small farming town.

Organized by the Cobble Hill Farmers' Institute, itself a venerable group with a fine history, the show's aims are simple: celebrate the area's rural heritage and bounty, its culture, industries and environment and have a great time at this annual reunion.

There is a parade at 9:30 downtown Cobble Hill starting on August 24th!
