A great event for women, by women, is making its return to 100 Mile House.

After a fun and successful inaugural event that drew big crowds last spring, the Cariboo Women’s Fair is back, May 8-9.

The second annual two-day event at the South Cariboo Rec. Centre will see a variety of attractions, dozens of vendors and plenty of entertainment – all with the interests of women in mind.

Kicking things off is the very popular wine and cheese shopping and social evening, from 5 to 9 p.m. on May 8. Tickets for the 19+ years event are $10 and available at the South Cariboo Rec. Centre. Visitors can browse more than 50 vendors before the main fashion show event, with fashions by Didi’s Boutique, The Outlaw, Class Act Formals and Borgo’s Sport Shack on display. Psychic entertainment, card reading and belly dancing are also part of the evening’s festivities.

On May 9, entrance is free and open to all ages from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The day will feature a number of interactive attractions and games. It’s a perfect way to spend some mother and daughter time.

The day will see live music, baby crawling races, a craft workshop, yoga and Zumba showcases, and a bouncy castle for children with proceeds going to the Peter Skene Ogden Secondary School’s 2015 Dry Grad.

The Cariboo Women’s Fair 2015 is also a great shopping opportunity ahead of Mother’s Day, May 10.
