“We just really hope that everyone comes out and joins us for Harvest Festival and has a really good time,” says David Lapier, 25 year member of the Williamsburg Community Association.
“We’re ready to roll.”
This weekend’s 25th Annual Williamsburg Harvest Festival will be the last.
Lapier explains that most of the happenings will be the same as last year. “We have a good day planned,” he says.
He encourages anyone who has been considering entering any of the competitions to make the extra effort to participate.
“The prizes are really good this year,” says Lapier. “We have a great bunch of supporters, and our sponsors have been really generous.”
The craft show, outhouse race and contests wrap up Saturday morning and the parade goes at noon.
“The parade promises to be a good one,” said Lapier, saying that there will be a band. The Golden Gears will be part of the parade before setting up a display in the park for the afternoon.
Along with the horseshoe tournament, air bounce, various games, demonstrations and displays will be set up in J.C. Whitteker Park throughout the afternoon. Weather permitting, there will also be music in the park with Earl Casey & Friends.
Saturday night will feature Community Euchre at the Oddfellows Hall. Community Euchre replaced the dance last year, with much success. Lapier says the Community Euchre night is a great time.
“We already have 20 plus people signed up, and anyone can still sign up, just contact me,” says Lapier.
“It’s a really good night. It’s not competitive, so there are no prizes for winning. It’s just a fun social time. You don’t even have to know how to play Euchre to come out and have fun with us.” He adds that there will be some great door prizes.
“Come on out, let’s make this a great last hurrah.”
