Harvest Festival 2014 — A great day!

We had a blast hosting Harvest Festival in St. Albert once again, on one of the nicest days we had seen in a week!

Hundreds of people came by to enjoy the sunshine and have some fun, which included a scavenger hunt, kid’s crafts, live music, a beer-sampling garden, mini donuts, a petting zoo, and the requisite grain elevator tours and demonstrations. 
The winners have since been announced for our candy guessing game, so make sure to check your messages when you’re home – and take a look at some of the photos Vino took of the day, below.

Thanks to Amanda from the Art Gallery of St Albert for coming out to Harvest Festival! She’s pictured here making a “Scarf for St. Albert” with visitors

The train passed by at just the right time – we couldn’t have planned it better if we wanted it to!

Enjoying a beautiful Alberta day for our annual  Harvest Festival
