Harvestfest - Preserving Rural America

GREENLAND - In the true tradition of the harvest season the Ontonagon County Harvestfest took place Saturday at Stenson Park in Greenland. Once again Ontonagon held an event that is helping to preserve the heritage of the Western U.P.

The day’s program included exhibits, petting zoos, cider making and other traditional elements of our community. Pictured above is Eric Smith demonstrating the use of a cider press.

In the afternoon there was a fun-walk, pictured above, that included a lot of kids and their parents.

At the fair there were games and amusements for the little ones, like bowling with a pumpkin, and face painting. 

A big event of the day was the Pie Contest. Each contestant entered two pies. Slices were sold and the proceeds of the sale would go to the winner of the pie contest.

Also at the event were farmers, gardeners and crafters selling their produce and products. One could shop for farm-fresh and handcrafted items while listening to music played by local musicians “ Dale and Dale”.
