In the late summer of 2017 Demolition Derby was brought to the Grand Forks Fall Fair. With the support of the Fall Fair and a dedicated committee group that includes Wes Tetlock, Darrell and Corinna Chard, Craig & Jan Beliveau, Rod & Kerry Plotnikoff, Darcey Yates Roberts, Jason and Kelly McIver, Paul Whitford, Kristin Tetlock
The committee worked hard and it paid off. The show was a hit with spectators and a saviour to the fair as they were struggling for attendance.
2018 brought an even more exciting show, more cars, more spectators, Kids Power Wheels Derby and a professional events crew to help with running and promoting the show. Light Up The Sky Events brought a crew from throughout BC.
With the help of a great crew 2019 is bound for even more excitement. Stay Tuned...
