Harvest Festival

Scarecrow contest at the Harvest Festival

Union County’s 2011 30th Annual Harvest Festival was today! (That’s the scarecrow contest that you see above.) It’s in the Watchung Reservation, which is a place I like to go in the fall anyway.


Walking around the festival

There was a lot of stuff to do, all very family-oriented. Plenty of living history, many demonstrations, craft vendors, a petting zoo, a pumpkin-painting area, pony rides, storytelling, live bands, a farmer’s market stand, and more that I’m not thinking of right now.


Sausage, funnel cake, Oriental BBQ, and a generic fair-food vendor = the food court.

This is not a festival you visit for the food, though— which is a little unfortunate, being a HARVEST celebration and all. The entire eating area consisted of (1) a sausage truck that apparently also specialized in funnel cakes, (2) an Oriental BBQ tent, and (3) a generic festival-food vendor. Italian ice and popcorn were also available around the grounds.

You can visit Union County’s website or Patch.com for specifics.

(I’ll continue with a couple more photos tomorrow.)
