Harvest Fest packs a crowd

Crowds flocked to Downtown South Boston on a perfect fall Saturday for the annual Harvest Festival, with more than 100 vendors and a variety of entertainers keeping the fun going until late in the afternoon.

“Everything went wonderfully all day, we had a large crowd and we were very pleased with the success of the event,” said festival organizer Sara Davis. “It was an incredible crowd all day.

“It was a picture perfect day with incredible weather and there was a big variety of food. The vendors said they were looking forward to coming back next year, and the visitors enjoyed non-stop entertainment. We changed the layout this year and put all the food in Constitution Square, which was a big success,” Davis said.

Musicians, balloon sculptors, craftsmen, and food vendors made the day a fun one for thousands of people — young, old and in between — who meandered up and down Main Street.

The big turnout pleased downtown retailers and business owners. Brittany and Stephen Adamson, owners of Joe and a Bow, said they had their biggest day to date.

“We had great entertainers and performers; youngsters hopped, skipped and jumped around on the bounce houses, while others tried their hands at pumpkin painting,” Davis continued.

“Not only were the visitors happy with the events of the day, but the vendors were quite pleased also. Everyone enjoyed themselves,” said Davis.
