Fall was in the air on Saturday, Oct. 18, as an array of fun events was scheduled at Griffin Park for the 10th Annual Harvest Fest. Kicking things off the day was the much-anticipated Doggie Halloween Costume Parade at noon. Many owners and their beloved pets could be seen strutting their unique and somewhat comical outfits around the park in an attempt to bring home the gold in several categories such as cutest dog, most original, and funniest costume.

Following the parade from 1 to 3 p.m. more than 45 local venders set up booths around the entrance of the park and proceeded to hand out candy to the hundreds of children all dressed in their Halloween costumes. Amid the sugar-fueled excitement, children were entertained by the strolling magician, face painting, and hayrides among the many seasonal activities provided for them that day.
