This coming Saturday, October 1st, is the Kentville Harvest Festival in Centre Square and I’ve been invited to attend!
Kentville Harvest Festival
Harvest Fest kicks off Pumpkin People season in the Kentville area.
Oh my goodness, you don’t know what pumpkin people are? You are really missing out! Basically, they are scarecrows with straw bodies, and pumpkins for heads. The town sets up large displays throughout Kentville and local businesses and families also participate. Many of the displays are created to match a theme – cartoons, careers, comics, whatever. The theme for 2016 is ‘at your service’.
So, they’ve got that going on. In Centre Square on Saturday, you’ll also find music from the Hupman Brothers, face painting, pumpkin carving, food, family fun, and more! For more information, be sure to check out the Town of Kentville’s website, or just swing by. It’s free, after all.
Come Visit Me!
And, like I said, the most important reason to check out the festival is me! … (Okay, obviously I’m not the most important part of it, but you should still come anyway!)
This all started after some discussion with people at the Town of Kentivlle about my photo walk, happening later that day. (There’s still time to sign up for that, so check it out!) They invited me to participate to promote this and some of my other activities. So, obviously, I’ll be promoting the walk – the reason this all started!
I am, however, going to take full advantage of the table space. It would be silly not, right? So I’ll be promoting pretty much everything I’ve got going on right now.
When you come visit me, you’ll also find some of my note cards for sale. These are cards that I’ve had on eBay for a while. Now you can buy them cheaper and not have to pay for shipping! Great deal! They’re blank inside so they’re perfect for pretty much any occasion. I’ve used some of these cards as birthday cards and thank you cards.
Of course, I’ll also be promoting my Indiegogo crowdfunding project. As some of you may know, I’ll be travelling to Europe in the spring for a Battlefield Tour and to participate in the ceremonies marking the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge.
I’m also really hoping to put on a photography exhibit after the trip and a successful result of this crowdfunding campaign will go a long way to making sure that can happen.
I’m a member of the Kings County Photography Club. We meet on the first Wednesday of each month at NSCC Kingstec in Kentville and discuss photography (obviously), share photos, and enjoy photography excursions. I took the above photo on a recent club trip to Fort Anne. Many meetings also feature presentations on photography techniques or a member’s slide show. We welcome all skill levels!
I’ll have information about the Photo Club on my table, and be available to answer any questions you might have about the group.
Finally, if you have any questions about National Novel Writing Month, stop by and ask them! I’m the local Municipal Liaison and will have information available about the event and our local meet-ups.
I look forward to see you on Saturday!
