I guess I am little late in posting this. Go figure, huh?

As most of you know, we had our 1st  Annual Harvest Moon Festival in September 2013 and it was…well…let’s call it a ‘learning experience’…

Don’t get me wrong. We had an awesome time, made tons of new connections, met lots of new people and learned a wealth of little things that we hope will help us make our 2nd festival way better! It didn’t quite go how we had planned, though.  Performers didn’t show, schedules weren’t kept and admission was too high. Some of it couldn’t be helped. Some of it could have been avoided. Shit happens, right? But, we had a great time!

We had some awesome vendors! Bless them all for putting up with us as we fumbled our way through the event. We did warn them that it was our first year and we had no idea what we were doing….

So, this year we are making a few changes. Admission is much cheaper. We really want this to be a family-friendly event, so we needed to make it affordable for families. No-brainer, huh? Yeah…

Our staffing will be a little better trained this year, too. At least, that is the goal.

Our demonstration, competitions and events will stick closer to the scheduled times.

Our bonfire will be bigger.

Our event will be awesome!

And, here are few more random pics from our first go-round

I guess that about covers it. As you can see, we were all clearly having a great time, and things really got kickin’ after dark, but the photographer had gone home by then. Maybe that’s a good thing….?
