Listowel is not about to let the 165th anniversary be eliminated by the COVID-19 pandemic.
So the Listowel Agricultural Society leaders have got their thinking caps on, dreaming up ideas to overcome the challenges of social distancing, bans on large gatherings, etc.
One project is offering packets of sunflower and pumpkin seeds for a growing competition.
Another is drive-through meals, drive-in fireworks and an Explore Your Community Scavenger Hunt/Car Rally.
The celebrations will stretch over the first two weeks of July.
They have a website to check out new ideas as they are implemented: listowelfair.com .
