Harvest Fest is the highlight of Fall as Emmetsburg Retail Association members provide another unique experience for area residents.
Join the fun this Satuday, Oct. 6, at the VFW Hall in Emmetsburg. Events are from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
ERA members will be serving hot dogs, chili and cinnamon rolls. Entertainment will be provided by guitarists Troy Sargent and Dan Dooley.
And there will be games: Pumpkin Putt and Pumpkin Toss. For the youngsters, FUEL Group will assist kids with decorating mini pumpkins and cookies.
Calling all bakers. The "secret ingredient" this year is pumpkin. Entries of pumpkin baked goods are to be delivered to the VFW by 9:30 a.m. First, second and third places will be judged. Bakers will be rewarded with prizes created by The Glass Shop.
Door prizes will be awarded to those attending Harvest Fest. The prizes are decorated pumpkins, by participating businesses, and pies baked by Ardelle Connor.
Freewill donations will support the Emergency Food Pantry at UDMO.
Now is the time to purchase a Holiday Discount Button.
The ERA?Holiday Button is your ticket to six weeks of discounts at participating retail businesses. And, there will be weekly drawings for $50 in Retail bucks throughout the holiday season.
Those who purchase a button at Harvest Fest will be entered to win a new 42-inch LCD Flat Panel TV.
Twenty-two participating Emmetsburg Retail Association merchants are joining in the Harvest Fest celebration. There are an additional 12 supporting and sustaining ERA members who offer their thanks for continued patronage.
