Harvest Moon Festival managed to withstand Sunday’s drizzle | News, sports, jobs
PARKERSBURG — Despite rain on Sunday, the Harvest Moon Festival continued to craft and entertain attendees to round out the festival weekend.
“It’s gone well so far.” Christina Stevens of Heartwood Blooms said of the festival’s weekend turnout. “I was worried about the rain this morning, but it will be better in the afternoon.”
Including Stevens, there were quite a few new vendors at this year’s Harvest Moon Festival, as well as some familiar faces in the returning vendors.
Marjorie Pullin of Pullin Patterns has been attending the festival as a vendor for 30 years.
“He was really good yesterday.” Bolin said. “But the rain made it slow today. But then again, Sundays are always slow.”
Although Sunday was a bit wet with intermittent rain, Saturday was a hit for Harvest Moon.
“Yesterday we had over 2,200. Attendance was good and steady and it was a beautiful day.” Wood County Recreation Commission Director Bill Vincent said of Saturday’s attendance. “We had great entertainment, games for the kids, and lots of craft vendors. Besides the festival, we had the Vietnam Memorial Travel Wall and the Mayor’s Pickleball Tournament. There was a lot to do this weekend here at the park.”
