Annual Fall Harvest Festival is just around the corner

Animals, artisans, and homemade goodies abound at the 16 th annual Harvest Fall Festival. Again this summer, organizers at the Glengarry Pioneer Museumhave been busy !nalizing details for two exciting and popular weekend events this fall; the 16 th annual Harvest Fall Festival on Sunday, September 13, followed by the Battle of Glengarry, Saturday and Sunday, September 26-27. Step back in time on September 13 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and discover how Glengarry’s early settlers lived and worked. Explore how early settlers made butter, ice cream, harnesses and saddles, leather boots, and spun thread. Be captivated by at least 25 artisans demonstrating these techniques and many more. It may get a little noisy in the afternoon during this year’s rooster crowing contest. Get your roosters’ (real and imitation) crowing perfected! #is year there will be a particular focus on animals of all kinds including a petting zoo with rabbits, a mini pig, miniature ponies, and perhaps a few surprises. Louise Paquette, of Fassifern, and her family have been volunteering at the Festival for several years. “#is is a great family event,” said Paquette. In addition to the petting zoo, LaurieMaus from Dunvegan, has been busy organizing an exhibition focusing on heritage livestock through the Heritage Livestock Club of Eastern Ontario. Maus and her group focus on educating the public about heritage breeds and also o$er connections for those interested in buying local, organic meat. Visitors will also witness one of the largest horse-drawn wagon and carriage parades in Eastern Ontario led by the Quigley Highlanders Pipe Band at 1 p.m.#e parade showcases horses, of course, but also various types of devices that were traditionally drawn by horses. Guests with a %air for fashion are invited to come dressed in period attire. #ere will be music by several local groups including
