Columbia stag­ing ‘Harvest Fes­ti­fall’ Saturday, Sun­day

Manteca Bulletin - - Local -

COLUMBIA —The Columbia Cham­ber of Com­merce hosts its 33rd an­nual Harvest Fes­ti­fall on Saturday, Oct. 14, and Sun­day, Oct. 15 on the shady streets of Columbia State His­toric Park. The event runs 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sun­day.

“I am truly look­ing for­ward to be­ing a part of this fun event filled with amaz­ing art­work and happy peo­ple in an ab­so­lutely won­der­ful at­mos­phere,” said first-time vendor Leanne Sal­dana, who sells hats and jew­elry in­spired by her Na­tive Amer­i­can her­itage.

Amidst fall dec­o­ra­tions, more than 50 ven­dors dressed in pe­riod cos­tumes sell hand­made crafts in­clud­ing quilts, can­dles, home dé­cor, stained glass, ce­ram­ics, paint­ings, jew­elry, glass­work, wood­work, toys and hats. Re­turn­ing ven­dors in­clude The Bird’s Nest, John Cline Crafts, Jude­signs, Mary Kennedy Bead Art, Mother Lode Weavers and Spin­ners, Mur­phys Mus­tard Com­pany, My Sil­ver Lin­ing, WATCH Re­sources and more.

“I’ve been a part of the Fes­ti­fall for at least ten years and I love the fam­ily-friendly at­mos­phere,” said Jan Mangili, who will sell dec­o­rated glass bot­tles.

The old-fash­ioned harvest festival is for all ages, with free ad­mis­sion. Lo­cal mu­si­cians and dancers per­form in the gazebo and on the street, and there are ac­tiv­i­ties for the chil­dren, who can have their faces painted, par­tic­i­pate in craft demon­stra­tions and search for the per­fect Hal­loween pump­kin. And the Harvest would not be com­plete with­out caramel and candy ap­ples from Nel­son’s Candy Kitchen.
