Norfield Children’s Center is hosting an old-fashioned fall treat on Saturday, Oct. 13, a Harvest Festival from 2 to 6 p.m. for the whole family to celebrate the season.
The event is being held at the Weston Historical Society’s Coley House on Weston Road.
For a small entrance fee, there will be lots of activities, including a pumpkin decorating contest. Prizes will be awarded in two categories, Kids and Family. The judging of the Pumpkin Parade will happen at 4 p.m.
Games include a quarterback challenge (a target placed at one end of the field, and a toss line that moves continuously farther back), candy cornhole toss, a scarecrow building race, seed spitting contest, and a timed challenge to find a (larger than average) needle in a haystack.
There will be an arts and crafts tent. A fall collage, featuring a variety of natural and autumnal art materials, will let all artists flex their creative muscles, and the results will later be displayed at the Weston Public Library.
Attendees may make a pumpkin print magnet to take home, and face painting will be available for those who prefer to be the canvas.
The festival includes a baked goods sale, wine tasting sponsored by Georgetown Package Store, and folks can buy guesses as to how many candy corns are in a jar.
Some local craftspeople will have wares on display. A few Halloween classics will be playing in the movie tent, and there even will be a few surprises.
