A Farm-Tastic Extravaganza
It's here, folks. The event that your FFA courses prepared you for. A chance to show off your crops, tractors and gardening wares, or to sample someone else's. It's the Harvest Festival at Wildlife West Nature Park (87 North Frontage Rd.) in Edgewood, N.M. And while it may seem like a trek, 30 miles is a mere cruise when you take into consideration all that will be on hand. Celebrating the “area's culture, traditions and agricultural heritage,” there will be a tractor parade, visits to the Pinto Bean Museum, fresh produce, wine sampling, live music, delicious food, tractor games and old-fashioned hayrides. And that's just the tip of the pie, so to speak. A down-home, family friendly event like this isn't one to be missed. And you have two days to get your acts together, get the kiddos in the car and get truckin'. The festival starts on Saturday, Aug. 16, at 9am with a tractor parade and continues till about 6pm. Then it picks up again on Sunday, Aug. 17, from 10am to 6pm. All the weekend's activities, minus the Chuckwagon Dinner Show, are included with regular admission ($7 regular, $6 seniors, $4 students). And, as always, children under 5 are free. (Mark Lopez)
