Serve Daily - - NEWS -

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.

Thanks to the spon­sors from the lo­cal com­mu­nity in­clud­ing Macey’s and Cre­ative Signs & Graph­ics. Thank you to the City Coun­cil and Parks & Recre­ation for their support.
