This year’s Harvest Arts Festival on Sept. 28 will include a fun new way for Chamber of Commerce members to promote their business.

“We are holding a ‘Scarecrow Stroll’ in the downtown park in conjunction with the festival,” reported Chamber Executive Director Victoria Gaitten.

Businesses that register with the chamber (www.everythingsbetterinmetter.com under calendar) by Friday, Sept. 20, will be assigned a lamp post in the Trapnell Park at which to decorate their scarecrows. Voting will take place during the Festival, which is slated from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. that day. 

Sept. 20 is also the deadline for vendors to sign up for arts and crafts booths. Food booths are not open for this event. Vendor booths are 12x12 and located in the Trapnell Park. To reserve booth spaces, visit everythingsbetterinmetter.com under calendar.

Activities planned throughout the day include live music, a food booth by Future Farmers of America and other food vendors, a tractor display, arts and crafts booths, kids’ activities and arts and crafts booths specially designed for kids, and a petting zoo.

T-shirts to commemorate the event are now on sale and can be ordered now through Sept. 13. (T-shirt order forms can be found in this paper.)

The annual Harvest Arts Festival is sponsored jointly by Metter-Candler Chamber of Commerce, Candler County Young Farmers and the Candler County Arts Council.
