Hebron’s Harvest Moon Festival returns on Saturday

October 21 – HEBRON – The fourth annual Harvest Moon Festival will be held in Hebron on Saturday.

Organized by The Town Center Project, a volunteer organization dedicated to promoting “downtown” Hebron along Route 66/Main Street, the event will take place from 2:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.

Live musical entertainment will be featured, along with food trucks and artisan stalls. Paranormal investigators will discuss ghost hunts, and from 5-6 p.m. there will be opportunities for deception or treatment for children in costume on the north side of Main Street from the Church of Hope to the Supermarket Ted’s IGA.

Ted’s Plaza will also be the site of a car show.

A pumpkin contest will also be organized for children, teenagers and adults. Entrants are encouraged to bring their carved pumpkins to the festival by 6 p.m., where they will be displayed on a tower outside the Douglas Library and judged. The first place winner will receive $100, while the second and third place winners will receive gift cards from local businesses.

The pumpkins will be lit as an exhibit for the rest of the event.

There will also be an apple pie bake hosted by The Flour Girl Cafe, located at 12 Main Street. Additionally, a performance by Alyson’s dance troupe will take place and a children’s playground will be sponsored by the Hebron Democrats. The Hebron Veterinary Office will also sponsor the Barktober Dog Jog.

Staff at the Douglas Library of Hebron, located at 22 Main Street, will be in high spirits as the building is temporarily transformed into a haunted library. Donations made to the Haunted Library will benefit young adult programs.

Hebron Fire Company #1, located at 44 Main Street, will be open for fire apparatus tours.

Due to the festival, a portion of Route 66 will be closed to through traffic from the Route 85 intersection to the Route 316 intersection. A detour around the festival will be via Kinney Road.

Festival parking is available at RHAM High School, located at 85 Wall Street/Route 316. “Ghoul Buses” will transport festival-goers from the school to the library, fire station, and Ted’s Plaza, and vice versa. -poured.
