CRYSTAL FALLS—Summer is winding down. That means plans are being finalized for the 12th annual Crystal Falls Harvest Fest.
“If rooting the home team is something you like to do, join the Crystal Falls Business Association on Friday, Sept. 21, for a tailgate party before the Forest Park Trojan football game,” said organizers.
“Hot dogs, chips and pop are complimentary at the east entrance of Dick Mettlach Field beginning at 5:30 p.m.; game time 6:30.”
Festivities begin on Saturday, Sept. 22, at 8 a.m. with an antique and crafters flea market.
The downtown area of Crystal Falls will be bustling with over 50 vendors registered.
At 9 a.m. the perennial plant exchange or sale begins. This anticipated event gives local residents a chance to either swap a perennial or purchase one for just $1.
At 10 a.m., the Harbour House Museum will be open for viewing and eating.
“Yes, once again they’ll be serving up their homemade pie and chili. Job’s Daughters will be painting faces, or if you want to get an early start on your fall decorating, you can decorate a pumpkin.
“If you have a craft or treasures to sell and are interested in registering as a vendor, we still have some spaces available. Contact Terrie at 875-6868 for more information.”
Live local music will be the popular Tamarack Group featuring Bob Arthur, John Sundquist and Pat Oakes.
“This accomplished trio will delight you with the fiddle, Irish whistle, accordion and piano.”
If camping for the weekend is in your plans, then Bewabic State Park is the place to be. Festivities include site decorating, costumes and trick or treating.
