Oglesby hosts first Harvest Festival

Posted by wlpo on October 3, 2009

The cool air, the changing leaves- it’s fall in the Illinois Valley.  You can get into the spirit in Oglesby.  They’re holding a Harvest Fest and farmer’s market today.

          You’ll find a scarecrow contest and items for sale.  There’s also a kid’s carnival with petting zoo from 9am until 11am.  Signup for the kid’s tractor pull is at 10:30.

          Later today you can grab a bite at the community dinner sponsored by the Dickinson House Foundation.  They’ll be serving grilled pork chops, German potato salad, applesauce, and dessert from 4:30 to 6:30 for $10. If it’s raining the dinner will be held inside of the Dickinson House.

          There is a beer garden and live music starting at 5pm.
