It’s a time to fill the streets and indulge in all that is autumn. Crafters from across the midwest are invited to showcase their hand-made creations. Favorites include jewelry, wooden signs, glass art, and copper sculptures, among so many more. The craft locations are in each of the two downtown Green Lake parks. All that ‘crafting’ may get you hungry, so treat yourself to a cream-puff, handmade pie, or another sweet or savory item from the many service organizations offering good eats on Saturday starting at 10am. Nestled in with the crafters at Playground Park are the kid’s games and activities. Back by popular demand is the petting zoo and pony rides. Your kids will enjoy bouncing around on giant trampolines or the inflatable activity zone. Have fun and support the Boys and Girls Club when playing a variety of carnival games. Set up along Water Street by the Mill Pond, dozens of farm market vendors display their home-grown, hand-made, or locally-raised goods. Bring home a bushel of apples, a sour-dough loaf, pumpkins, mums, and all the other fall produce you can imagine. Sample hand-mixed dips and spreads, and enjoy talking to the local farmers and artisans. Saturday’s 26th Anniversary Harvest Fest parade is the largest of the year with over 75 entries. Grab a seat on Mill Street and sit back for the show. Jugglers, marching bands, stilt-walkers, racing tiny cars, whacky-wheelers, antique cars, hand-decorated floats, and of course fire engines will put on a great event. And one of the most anticipated features of Harvest Fest, Taste of Green Lake, opens its' tents at 10:30am on Sunday. A street-full of area restaurateurs send wafts of gourmet food into the air. Brat-burger on a pretzel bun, butternut squash ravioli, tenderloin sandwich, and seafood chowder are just a few of the menu items you’ll find. The most common practice is to bring a friend, or family, to share all your dishes with. Also on Sunday, 100s of classic cars will line the streets for the Jack Taylor Memorial Car Show featuring 1989 or older show condition autos. Stroll the streets to find your favorite!
