TEWKSBURY – Backpacks, lunchboxes, maybe a slight chill in the morning air? Ok, maybe you aren’t thinking about fall to closely just now, but the Tewksbury Public Events and Celebrations Committee has been at work all summer planning a Fall Harvest Festival.
Residents are invited on Sunday, September 14, from 11:00am-5:00pm at Livingston Park behind the Recreation Center.
This family event will help residents welcome fall with games, family activities, rides, cooking competitions, and vendors.
The committee hopes to raise funds at this event to help offset costs for the Fourth Of July Fireworks in 2015, as this past year they were cancelled.
Cheryl Gay, Chair of the committee, said, “We have a great committee putting together this event. We’ve been working closely with Town Manager Richard Montuori, who has gone above and beyond in helping us and loves how we are incorporating local businesses into the event.”
Gay also noted that she had approached every vendor at the weekly Tewksbury Farmer’s Market to invite them to host a table at the festival. The committee has asked all invited vendors to try keep costs down as they hope to make this a day for family fun that’s easy on the wallet.
The Committee is bringing in the Canalligator from the Lowell Spinners, Paige and Victor Impink will be giving Frisbee lessons, and DJ’s and local bands will be invited to perform perform.
This event promises something for everyone from a pie-eating contest and dunk tank, to family activities. Gay and her committee are hoping the Harvest Fair will become an annual event. Surely, with school back in session and the weather starting to be crisp and cool, this fair will offer an opportunity to relax with neighbors before the weather gets truly challenging.
