The Sodus Chamber of Commerce is planning for the fourth annual Harvest Fest to be held on Sept 24, 2011 at the Sodus Central School, off Rt 88, in the Village of Sodus. Numerous plans are already underway and include a community pumpkin growing contest, (the 2010 pumpkin weighed in at over 300 lbs!)
Other plans for the Harvest Fest include a baking contest with adult and youth divisions with ribbons and prizes awarded. Another big hit last year was the produce carving and decorating contest for all ages.
Pumpkins, apples, and watermelons were carved or decorated and displayed and ribbons awarded by age groups. If your harvest produce goes astray we will also be displaying any “Freaky Fruits” you’d like to share!
There will be pumpkin droppin’ and “chuckin” (but only with owner’s permission). And we promise to have plenty of seeds on hand for the seed spitting contest so keep practicing.
The traditional arts and crafts merchants will be there with the unusual gifts for Christmas. Vendor applications are being taken for just about anything. Last year’s vendors had lots of food like warm apple crisp and homemade soup, hots, hamburgs chicken BBQ and more. The farmer’s market portion was a big hit as well. For more information on vendors applications please see web site at www.sodusny.org under special events, or call the chamber at 315-576-3818, or email [email protected] A free wagon ride will again provide the transportation around the track.
And that’s just the beginning, by partnering with the school there will be many things to see and do for the whole family with free activities for the kids. For more information and pictures on previous years see our web site at www.sodusny.org.
