One of the first exhibits on Clearbrook’s main thoroughfare was Matsqui Councilor Jacob Janzen’s Dutch windmill. The windmill was built by A A DeFehr of Centennial Street. Clearbrook Days was organized by Reeve J A Murphy and was meant as introduction to the Airshow and the Gladiolus Show, both occurring on the same weekend. Many residents, especially local business workers and owners, dressed in centennial clothing, and participated in many different events occurring on the streets until 9pm, when the stores closed. Events included drag races, square dancing, fireworks, automobile displays, petting zoos and bargains and good buys in the stores. The events end Friday evening with a fireworks display under the direction of the Matsqui Fire Department.
