MORRISBURG — Upper Canada Village hosted its annual Fall Fair Sept. 16-17.

The 1860s inspired Fair decorations have now been replaced with an almost infinite amounts of carved pumpkins for the site’s traffic-jam-inducing Pumpkinferno.

Fall Fair attendee Brian McRae snapped these photos at the Fall Fair, held only days before autumn’s official arrival at the popular tourist attraction.
