The Vancouver Island Exhibition Fair starts this Friday, August 16, 2013 in Nanaimo at Beban Park and runs for three days. VIEX is a fun country fair for the family and originally started over 100 years ago.
The logger sports show will return this year with axe throwing, hand sawing and choker racing. Vancouver Island and BC were built on the forestry industry; years ago everyone you met worked in the woods. Logging camps had a cookhouse and a bunkhouse which were the source for many expressions and stories.
Take a minute and step back in time and visit Logging Expressions and Stories.
