North Market Harvest Festival
Presented by North Market
Venue: North Market
The North Market is declaring the arrival of October as the official start of "Pie Season"! With the abundance of favorite autumn baking items including apples, pumpkins and all manner of squash, it's the perfect time for the North Market Harvest Festival on Saturday, October 5.
This festival is a fun one for the kiddies with a plethora of activities and entertainment. Mark Wood will be twisting balloon animals and executing fancy rope tricks. Rita Miller will be on hand for fanciful full face painting. The Columbus Artmobile will have crafting activities for youngsters. Joy Unspeakable, the living statue, will be in character as "The Scarecrow" to delight farmer's market customers.
Enterprising customers have a couple of opportunities to take home a prize in our Harvest Festival baking contests. In the pumpkin and apple pie contests, entrants are invited to submit their favorite recipe for judging. Each pie competition winner will receive $100 in North Market gift certificates. Second place will receive $50 in North Market gift certificates. Participation is limited to 12 entries per contest.
