Don’t miss the harvest parade

Fire up the tractor, gussy-up the goat, dress the baby as a carrot or just come as you are to the first annual Fall Harvest Parade in Friday Harbor Saturday, Oct 15, 2:30-3:30 p.m.

Celebrate the end of the summer farm season and SJI’s farm heritage--past and present-- as a spectator or be part of the parade.

Enter your farm-related parade participants on foot, tractor or truck representing farms and farm families or animals, kids celebrating local agriculture, vendors of local farm products, the co-op, local grocery stores, Island Certified Local restaurants and agricultural, open Space or sustainable food groups.

The parade will stage at the Fairgrounds, travel down Argyle Avenue, turning right on Spring Street and right again on First Street, then go around Sunken Park and up Nichols Street back to Argyle.

Post-parade festivities will be held at Brickworks.

This event is organized by the Agricultural Resources Committee for the 2011 October Fall Harvest Festival and Savor the San Juans 2011.
