|Harvest Festival - September 22, 2012
The Olds Agricultural Society, in partnership with Communities in Bloom, is hosting the 2012 Season Finale of the Farmer's Market in front of the Cow Palace on Saturday, September 22.
Billed as the Harvest Festival, this multi generational fun filled day is designed to celebrate the summer's bounty and the beginning of fall. Events in Centennial Park will include a Scarecrow Building Contest, a Skateboard Demonstration and a Straw Bale Maze. Musicians and other entertainment will be ongoing throughout the day. Uptowne Olds will also be hosting events in the business core.
Reminiscent of the former Creative Arts Exhibits that were once held during the fair in Olds, Harvest Festival Contests include contests for the Best Apple Pie, Best Jam, Funniest Shaped Vegetable, Largest Sunflower Head, and Photography. Great prizes will be awarded!
Plus the first annual Scarecrow contest! Scarecrows can be made from items such as cast-off clothing, burlap, gunny sacks, overalls, straw hats, corn shucks etc. Straw will be provided on site, but remember, these scarecrows must be designed to really scare a crow!
Then there's the Harvest Festival Pet Parade! Conte$t Includes Prizes for: Best Costume, Largest Pet, Smallest Pet, Best Trick, and Most Unusual Pet. Hosted by All Your Pets and Uptowne Olds.
