OCONTO CHAMBER HARVEST FEST 2017
Harvest Fest was held on September 30th. Vendor numbers increased significantly from last year as the venue was changed to Main St. and many businesses on Main St. were open. The weather was fantastic and many, many positive comments were heard about the new venue. The Oconto Area Humane Society sponsored a “Cutest Pet” Contest.
You may have noticed that the flower pots on Main St. were planted with a fall theme. A thank you goes out to Nancy Rhode who purchased the pumpkins and mums. Planting was done by Nancy and Kathy Hayes on the first day of autumn, the hottest day of the year. Please recognize the business sponsors of the planters: Newcap, Cain Accounting, OCEDC, Huntington Bank, Image Apparel, Citgo, Oconto Pharmacy and State Farm Insurance.
More activities for children will hopefully be added next year. In addition to the Cutest Pet Contest, Bay Impressions set up a tent for a coloring activity for young and old artists. Brenda Race supplied pumpkins for children to paint, Westenberg Financial had a bean bag toss game as well as the Lions Club and Farnsworth Library was conducting a bike decorating activity.
Food was provided by Wise Guys, Aurora Carrazco, 1st American Lutheran, Jim Truckey’s kettle corn, Newcap, and Crivello’s. Entertainment was provided by Don Marovich and Jean Carlin and Cain throughout the day.
