Get ready for the community’s first Harvest Festival, Sept. 14, 15.
It will be a family affair with games for both the kids and adults.
A similar, but less ambitious, event happened last October.
Sponsored by the Grand Coulee Dam Area Chamber of Commerce, the two-day event will feature a barbecue competition cook-off with connections to the Pacific Northwest Barbecue Association. There’s a prize purse of $2,500, and those participating will have a cook off of pork, brisket, ribs and chicken.
A second competition is a pie baking contest, with locals baking either an apple or berry pie.
There will be a beer tent, a customized pet show, a petting zoo, a hay ride and some other activities, all at North Dam Park.
The chamber is sponsoring a community-wide yard sale at the park, so you can bring your tables and items to sell.
There’s the promise of face painting, pumpkin carving and a flock of kid’s games.
Chamber Manager Peggy Nevsimal said that volunteers will be needed to help make the event successful.
