Middletown to reap rewards of Harvest fair

September 15, 2013 by  

The 39th annual Harvest Fair is taking place at the Norman Bird Sanctuary in Middletown for two days early next month. This popular event regularly draws more than 12,000 visitors each year.

There will be plenty of activities taking place at the fair, including home and garden competitions, games like tugs o’ war, live entertainment, food for purchase, a country store, and more than 80 arts and crafts vendors, who will no doubt be selling a variety of original and handmade items suitable for gift giving.

There will also be children’s activities at the fair, including pony rides, face painting, hay rides, and pumpkin painting. Everyone can also enjoy a ride on the Mabel Express (a barrel train) and take part in building their own scarecrow. In short, everything likely to be found at an old-style country autumn fair can be enjoyed here, and there will no doubt be something to appeal to every member of the family.

The Norman Bird Sanctuary takes up over 300 acres and has seven miles of hiking trails. It is an ideal place to see many types of local and migratory birds year round.

Middletown printing companies have likely been helping the sanctuary prepare for this popular annual event. This might include providing posters for advertising, banners for decoration, and flyers to be distributed throughout the area.

The Harvest Fair is taking place at the Norman Bird Sanctuary on October 5 – 6 from 10:00 am – 5:00 pm each day. For more information, call 401-846-2577.
