The fall is quickly approaching, as the leaves are starting to turn into an array of reds and orange. The beginning of fall brings with it the return of school, sweaters, and something wonderful for all of us in Dufferin-Caledon - fall fairs! We have five different fall fairs taking place within our riding from the north to south; enough for everyone to schedule a trip for a fun-filled weekend or two.
