MASON, W.Va. — After a year hiatus due to COVID-19, the Mason Harvest Festival returned to the Stewart-Johnson V.F.W./Lottie Jenks Memorial Park on Saturday.

The event included a rededication of the Mason park, which has seen several upgrades since July. Mayor Kristopher Clark and members of the V.F.W. unveiled a new park sign.

Following the ceremony, the park was filled with a petting zoo, games and music. Included in the family-friendly activities were the Campbell Family Farm and Animal Encounters of Buffalo which brought a petting zoo, as well as pony rides set up at the bottom of the hill.

There was a Eurobungee and inflatable rock climbing wall set up in the park, along with face painting. Children also could take part in the “needle in the haystack” game and there was a pit filled with a ton of shelled corn for the children to also enjoy.

For the teens and adults, bingo games were offered with cash prizes. There were door prizes given away, and vendors and crafters sold their wares. Music throughout the day was provided by Barry Taylor.

All games and activities were being provided by the Town of Mason and were free to enjoy.
