The Staff at N3 World Headquarters and Seemingly Eternal Leaf Depository weekend plans (other than criss-crossing between a pair of Friday Homecoming games held in Newaygo and Fremont) look to be floating toward Fremont to take in some of the festivities surrounding this year’s Harvest Festival (see our home page ad).
The parade was outstanding Thursday night and a great way to kick-off the doings in Fremont this weekend. My favorites were the lawn mower dancers who, while not yet polished, still performed admirably and drew rave reviews.
The action continues on Saturday with kid’s activities in Veteran’s Park from 10am-2pm including all the pumpkin bowling, seed spitting, face painting fun you can possibly imagine. There’s also an inflatable obstacle course for the young-uns to challenge.
Meanwhile, one can stroll about the park and take part in A Taste of Fremont an event that delivers the opportunity to sample the offerings served up by the fine local folks who supply us with eats. The staff of N3WH have always been in favor of such activities given the ongoing tendency to experience hunger when covering festivals (or sports, politics, entertainment, board meetings, community events, etc.) so forgive us if we tend to linger a bit too long at the tables.
The park will also be home to the Antique Tractor Show giving aficionados of this intriguing machinery a chance to get an up close glimpse at some of the beauties that went rolling by during the parade.
While you’re in town check out the Hay Art. The area is rife with of the most ingenious creations you can imagine. Voting continues through October 13th and here are the details from the fine folks at the Fremont Area Chamber office:
To place your vote is very simple! Voting is done by canned goods. Bring your votes to the Fremont Area Chamber office during the hours of 8:30 am to 4:30 pm Monday thru Friday. Some of the participants will be collecting votes at their place of business to make it even easier for you to cast your vote for your favorite creation! All the food is donated to the True North Food Pantry.
The display that has the most weight per pound from the canned goods collected is determined the winner! So you will want to make sure you place your vote or canned good in hopes of ensuring your favorite takes first place! Voting will run for two weeks starting on Wednesday, September 27th and staying open through Friday, October 13th
The Fairgrounds will be the scene of some major merrymaking (and a beverage tent) from 5-11pm and the fun kicks into high gear early on when N3WH most favored stand-up comedy artist (and N3 columnist) Megan Wirts takes to the stage beginning at 6pm. She will be followed by stand-up colleague Jason Bazzett then at 8pm the nearly legendary Braunschweiger Blues Band a group notorious for providing listeners with a really good time will be commanding the stage from 8-11pm.
This all looks to be some major kind of fun. It’s 10 bucks to get in but hey, you get a souvenir cup, a hot dog, some snacks and besides you’re seeing a comedy show and a concert.
That’s what we call a bargain.
See you there.
