THE WATERMELON-EATING contest is just one many attractions at the Black Creek Fall Fair this weekend.

Black Creek Fall Fair has silent auction and much more

The fair at the Black Creek Community Centre this Saturday is the biggest fundraiser annually for the Black Creek Community Association.

The Community Fair at the Black Creek Community Centre this Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. is the biggest fundraiser annually for the Black Creek Community Association (BCCA).

The biggest component of the fundraiser is the silent auction.

The BCCA has more than 100 items and counting. Thirty-six of those items can be bought by buying at our Pegboard Surprise, where you are guaranteed to get something worth over $5, but it’s a surprise as to what it is. Top prizes are gift certificates at Black Creek Farm & Feed and Discovery Foods.

Some of the auction items are not just silent but blind as well. You won’t know what the other bids are when you place yours.

Then add a Guessing Game, Mystery Boxes and a Bucket Raffle, and you have more than a Silent Auction. The Bucket Raffle will be a $1 per ticket to win a night at the Seaview Yurt situated on the ocean, proudly donated by Seaview Farms.

Silent auction items include a snowshoe tour at Mount Washington, a crafting weekend at Wyldflower B&B in Qualicum Beach, a cord of firewood from Black Creek Shadow Ranch, or a trip on the MV Uchuck out of Gold River.

Check www.bccaonline.com for the full list and come to fair this weekend in Black Creek at 2001 Black Creek Road. As parking is limited at the BCCA, please park at the Mennonite Church on the highway; follow the signs.
