The third annual Fall Harvest Festival began with the ribbon cutting for the new “Inspiration Square” on Friday, Oct. 5. The Square is a newly founded space for public events to be hosted, and for people to nurture new ideas and art. Post ribbon cutting, families spent the night playing cornhole, while eating the barbeque served and visiting with the many booths that were set up. In addition to the games, kids were encouraged to ride on the horse drawn carriage and get their faces painted, while their parents danced to some square stepping tunes and listened to the live music. As the night came to an end, buzzing conversation could be heard about the new square and families left smiling.
