Brandon gets ready for the Harvest People surge
BRANDON — It’s almost time to build your own “Harvest Person.” That’s one of the draws at the annual Brandon HarvestFest, which, as always, will take place the Sunday before Columbus Day Weekend, Oct. 1 this year.
Because of the downtown road construction, this year’s HarvestFest has moved from Central Park to Estabrook Park north of the village just west of Route 7. It’s still at the usual time — 1-4 p.m.
At HarvestFest, the Brandon Chamber of Commerce supplies all materials, accessories and instruction on how to make your very own “Harvest Person” or “Leaf Person.” Event-goers choose clothes, a hat, shoes and embellishments to personalize their own “Person.” Volunteers help with the finishing touches.
This event is a great way for people to be creative and let imaginations run wild.
The first “Harvest Person” per family is free of charge. After that, they are only $5 each.
Besides Harvest People-making, the event includes hayrides, pumpkins, family fun and activities for both kids and adults.
The Neshobe PTO and the Brandon Recreation Department are providing a lot of the organization for this year’s event.
For more info contact the Chamber at 802-247-6401 or Brandon Recreation Dept. at 802-247-3635 ext. 213
