The Harvest Moon Hurrah celebrated its 10th year!
The Spanish Fork Arts Council presented the Harvest Moon Hurrah celebrating its 10th year! This FREE community event for the entire family was held Saturday, September 20 at the City Park (Library Park) on Center & Main from 3:00 to 9:00 pm.
This event started in 2005, as the sesquicentennial celebration of the founding of Spanish Fork. Beginning at 3:00 pm was the children’s crafts & games in the large tent and the giant paint-it-yourself murals. At 4:00 pumpkin decorating, clowns & balloon animals, storytelling, and caricature illustrations. At 5:00 the hay rides with live bluegrass music began. Activities wrapped up between 6:00-7:00 so that everyone can enjoy the featured entertainers.
In keeping with their tradition of outstanding entertainment, such as The Piano Guys, the Spanish Fork Arts Council was thrilled to announce singer/songwriter, YouTube sensation and local favorite Maddie Wilson, along with Madilyn Paige a top 20 finalist from The Voice, as featured performers. Also exciting to welcome back the wildly popular Green Man Group from UVU, and to introduce ReMix ACappella, a new acappella group made up of former BYU Vocal Point members that performed on NBCs The Sing-Off! As is the custom, also featured were local favorites such as the ALA Show Choirs and Symphony, the Spanish Fork Chorale, magician Ricky Brandon, and the Utah Valley Children’s Choir who performed at the very first Harvest Moon Hurrah 10 years ago. And of course There was wonderful food vendors serving up delicious food at family-friendly prices.
