And Reggie Quintana of White Rock is among the performers illuminating the Summer Celebration Reverse Parade at the 110th PNE Fair.

Developed as an entirely drive thru experience to meet COVID safety protocols, the event includes the Reverse Parade, a President’s Choice Superdogs show, drive-thru agricultural displays featuring favourite barnyard animals, an opportunity to purchase Prize Home tickets, as well as a wide array of iconic Fair food favourites. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit: https://pne.ca/fair2020/

The cost is $25 per carload (prepaid). Admission includes one souvenir PNE face mask, and two free admissions to opening day of the 2021 PNE Fair. The PNE is open Tuesday to Sunday, Aug. 25-30, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
