Whigville Harvest Fest, 5K Run/Walk scheduled Oct. 28
The Whigville Preservation Group will hold the third annual Whigville Harvest Fest Oct. 28, in conjunction with the ninth annual Burlington 5K Run/Walk presented by the Burlington Land Trust.
There will be fun for the entire family after the 5K race, such as kids’ games and activities, arts and crafts, tractors on display, baked goods, local produce, a silent auction and more.
“Everyone in Whigville appreciates our village’s rich agricultural heritage, which will be on full display during Harvest Fest,” said Patti Smaldone, leader of the Whigville Preservation Group, in a release. “A team of dedicated volunteers has been planning for months so that we can raise funds to eventually preserve our agrarian way of life for future generations.”
The Whigville Preservation Group is a project of the Burlington Land Trust.
“Whigville is a throw-back to another time in American history when farming was prevalent,” said Paul Rochford, president of the Burlington Land Trust. “The landscape of Whigville, with its scenic views and grange, is increasingly unique in 21st century New England, and saving it is one of our top priorities.”
The Whigville Harvest Fest runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Whigville Grange, 153 South Main Street, Burlington. The Burlington 5K Run/Walk will start at 10 a.m. at the same location.
