FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 BOULDER JUNCTION, WI – Harvest Fest is a day of family fun with autumn sweets, belly warming food, games for kids, face painting, shopping and hayrides. The 21st Annual Harvest Fest will take place on Saturday, October 8 in downtown Boulder Junction.

From 10am to 3pm, bring the kids, dressed in costume, to join Granny Autumn as she leads them to various activities and games sponsored by local businesses. Take an old fashioned ride on tractor drawn hay wagon through town.  Adults will enjoy the fun too with a cranberry wine tasting held at Alder Lake Cranberry Gift Shop. Shoppers can collect receipts from purchases made in town and bring them to Shop the Haystack for a chance to win prizes and gift certificates.

In observance of Fire Prevention Week, the Boulder Junction Volunteer Fire Department will have tours of the station throughout the day. Granny Autumn and the kids will be making a stop at the Fire Station at 12noon for a Fire Fighter Challenge and live demo after which they will continue on with the games at local businesses.

Come early and enjoy pumpkin pancakes for breakfast at the Granary Family Restaurant. For lunch, grab a bowl of chili or a hot dog served by the Boulder Junction Lioness and for dessert bite into a fresh hand-dipped caramel apple from the Boulder Junction Chamber booth or stop by the North Lakeland School 8th Grade Class baked sale for a fresh baked fall treat. A seasonal produce sale with pumpkins and honey will be available all day at Winkler’s Greenhouse.

A full schedule of Harvest Fest events and games will be posted on boulderjct.org the week of the event. For more information, visit boulderjct.org or call 1-800-GO-MUSKY.
