MASON — Plans have been finalized for the Mason Harvest Festival, set for Oct. 13, at the Stewart-Johnson V.F.W./Lottie Jenks Memorial Park.
The festival will begin at noon, and end at 4 p.m. Games, inflatables, music, door prizes, and free food will all be featured.
From noon to 1 p.m., the town will be serving free hotdogs to those attending. Food will also be sold throughout the day by local vendors.
Among the events going on the entire day will be an inflatable Jacob’s Ladder, Euro Bungee, and a Power Wheels Race Track. A corn pit will be available for the children to play in, along with haybales for climbing. Music will be provided by the Kearns Family and Brent Patterson. Cornhole boards will be set up for pick-up games, and there will be drawings for cakes throughout the day.
Approximately 20 vendors will be selling their wares and food items. There will be products from home-based businesses, such as Plunder jewelry, along with handmade wreaths, baked goods, and homemade peanut brittle, to name a few. There will also be booths set up by the Mason Police Department, as well as one for voter registration.
The Mason Amusement Association, which is raising funds to build a splash pad next to the library, will be selling boxes of fruit to be delivered in early December, and “Mason” t-shirts. The association will also hold a 50/50 drawing, as well as one for a scarecrow basket.
