Last evening was the Harvest Festival at Harvest Christian Center. This was the Thirteenth Annual Free Harvest Festival to be Harvest Christian Center. There was lots of candy, toys, games, chili, cookies, cotton candy, popcorn, pony rides, and bouncing castles. It was an excellent event, the attendance was high, and the weather was beautiful. It was a warm evening—in the 70s!—and there was no wind. It was a wonderful event. I took several hundred photographs and will soon be sharing some of them in a slide show. I shall announce the availability of the slide show when it is ready for viewing.
