Kids to get harvesting in September

August 17, 2012 by  

Harvest Day festivities will take place at the Deanna Rose Children’s Farmstead on September 15 from 11:00 am – 3:00 pm. Admission is $2 and children aged two and under are admitted free of charge.

There will be lots of family-friendly activities in which to take part, including square dancing, live musical entertainment, games, a beekeeper demonstration, and apple-themed crafts to make and take home. There will also be appearances by such characters as Johnny Appleseed and Forest the Fox. In keeping with the festival, there will be plenty of good things to eat and drink, such as homemade kettle corn, apple cider, and apple sauce. Visitors can also learn how apple cider is made.

In all likely, Overland Park printing companies will be helping the organizers to prepare for Harvest Day. Flyer printing services would definitely help them get the word out about the event. While many residents might be aware of the celebration, visitors to the area or those from surrounding communities may not have heard of it. Flyers can be distributed to community centers, public libraries ,and tourism centers in nearby areas to advertise this family-friendly event.

Deanna Rose Children’s Farmstead is named after a police officer who was killed in the line of duty. It is situated on 12 acres of land, has over 200 different animals, and is a great place for families to learn about agriculture. Harvest Day is shaping up to be the perfect way to show children many of the wonders of nature and teach them the origins of the food they eat.
