abbotsford agrifairThe 2017 BC summer carnival schedule is already heating up with Shooting Star Amusements announcing it will return to the Abbotsford Agrifair.

“We have a bumper 2017 ahead, destined to be our best year yet,” said Brenda Medeiros, co-owner of Shooting Star since 2002. “2016 was our inaugural appearance at Agrifair and it was such a smash success, they’ve immediately signed us on again for more.”

July next year marks Canada’s 150th centenary year and the celebrations of pride will continue throughout the entire month, including at Agrifair in the heart of BC’s amazing Fraser Valley.

Agrifair 2016 Was a Smash!

“Our goal was to create an event our community would want to come and see, and they came!” said a delighted Ernie Silveri, President of Agrifair.

Shooting Star Amusements knows there’s nothing like  thrilling carnival rides and midway games – all operated by happy, friendly people – to draw an excited throng. Thousands packed Agrifair Exhibition Park on Haida Drive in Abbotsford across the last three days of July. “It was a huge thrill being part of it all,” said Medeiros, “and we are pumped to come back next year.”

2017 Will Be Even Better!

Shooting Amusements will be setting up all your favourite rides and games, and bringing all those mouth-watering delectables!

“Plus we’ll have a couple of new tricks up our sleeves,” boasted Medeiros. “Our new Think Sweet Deep Fried Treats van was a big hit with all its sweet deep fried glory. I have to say the deep fried Oreos got my vote for number 1.”

There will also be as many free activities in 2017 as there were this year, if not more.

Expect Agrifair 2017 to include much more of:

  • huge entertainments acts
  • mini-chariot racing
  • Country Horse Classic
  • racing ducks and pigs
  • motocross bike shows
  • public education events and displays
  • animal attractions
  • chuckwagons
  • jugglers and clowns
  • fresh produce, including stunning Abbotsford blueberries and corn
  • families and kids
  • miles and miles of smiles
  • and much, much more!

So buckle up for a ride (or many) in 2017 because Shooting Star is ready to blast off for another stunning BC summer of carnival magic.
