 There will be an assortment of crafts, live music, hayrides and lots of fun for everyone.
“We try to do community events. The last one we did was Canada Day. This time we thought a harvest themed event would be perfect,” said Galt Museum Community events co-ordinator Leslie Hall.
 Coincidentally their harvest festival coincides with the actual harvest moon, Sept. 29.

“So we’ll be able to watch the moon rise,” she enthused.

But while that is happening, so will a variety of harvest themed activities.

 Fort Whoop-Up which is still closed to flooding in the summer, will be bringing up their hay rides, there will be food. The Windy Rafter Barn Dancers will be coming from their Fort Macleod area base to teach line dancing.

Shaela Miller and the Pete Watson Joel Bryant duo will be playing live music, plus there will be several crafts programs including wheat bundles and corn husks.

“I got corn husks from Cornfest and have spent a week drying them for this. So I’m pretty excited,” Hall enthused.

“if we get good response to it, we’d like to make it an annual event,” she said of the Harvest Festival.
 The Harvest Festival takes place from 6-9 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 29. Admission to the festival is free.
