The Second Annual Harvest Day Festival held at the Mill Road Ball Park on Nov. 7 was presented by the Lighthouse Youth Group of Living Waters Fellowship. All monies raised benefit local youth groups.
The weather was perfect for a day with fellow community members, family and friends as Blair Adams opened up the entertainment and began the day’s line up. His opening song was one of Adams’ originals titled very appropriately ‘Mesquite.’
Hamburgers, hot dogs and corn on the cob served up by volunteers were available for a very reasonable fee. The volunteers had a bit of trouble with the cotton candy machine but once they got the hang of spinning it, things began to take shape.
Kids swarmed the bounce houses and had fun “bouncin their brains loose,” said one little participant in the day’s activities. There were several other games for the children and prizes available for all of them. Some folks even came out with their ‘fur babies.’
Local vendors handed out free goodies to visitors while others had items for sale that ranged from honey to massages and rings to handbags.
It was a great way to enjoy a Mesquite Fall afternoon and support local youth groups.
