Windham held its ninth annual Harvest Fest on Saturday, October 19 at Griffin Park.  The fun all-day event drew in a crowd of over 800 people.  The event was kicked off with the doggie costume parade, many dogs and dog owners could be seen dressed in both classic and some very unique costumes which they were then to be judged on.  After the dog parade came the kids costume parade which was equally as fun for all in attendance.  Of the many fun activities that were enjoyed such as face painting, crafts and hay rides many could be seen interacting with the “strolling magician who seemed to make his way around Griffin Park to most everyone.  The event was concluded with over 45 local businesses who set up booths around the entrance to the park where they proceeded to hand out candy to the hundreds of children all dressed in their Halloween costumes.  In between receiving their candy kids frequently stopped to watch the juggler and stilt walker as they made their way around the park.  This year’s Harvest Fest might have been the best one yet leaving many Windham family’s both happy entertained.
