No Parade But Fest Goes Forward
Fremont’s Harvest Festival has Hay Art, Beer Tent & More
Ok no parade. We get it.
One of the best parades in the region has always been the Harvest Festival version, a cavalcade of marching merriment that provides an avenue for the innovation of entrants and generally a boatload of candy for kids on the curb.
Toss in an election year and the route would be seeing local and regional pols turn out to deliver a few waves, a few handshakes and hopefully some prime sweets for the kiddos since no one running for office wants to be remembered as a purveyor of cheap candy.
But not this year.
Festivals have mostly gone by the wayside in this era of pandemic produced postponements.
And this will certainly not be anywhere near the same as previous Harvest Fests.
But hey, there’s the ever popular Hay Art Contest, a Porch Decorating Contest, Downtown Sales Specials, a Dessert Contest…
And a Beer Tent.
Yes, Brew Works is hosting not only a beer tent but one that will include entertainment as the always entertaining group Yard Sale Underwear will be cranking out the tunes starting at 6pm.
So drive around and take in some Hay Art, help our local businesses by patronizing a store or two, hit the farmer’s market Saturday morning…
And pay a visit to Brew Works. It might not be a parade, but hey, when’s the last time you were at a good old small town festival beer tent?
