From reports

Whitley County 4-H Clubs, Inc. will be hosting the fifth annual Autumn Harvest Festival at the Whitley County 4-H Fairgrounds on October 13, 2018 from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. There is no admission fee and free parking for this event. All proceeds from the event support the Whitley County 4-H Program.

There is one exciting new addition to this year's festival, we will be hosting a 4wd Truck Pull that evening starting at 5 p.m. The pull registration will start at 2 p.m. Gates for the grandstand will open at 4 p.m.

The traditional Autumn Harvest Festival events will be back including the Craft Show and Flea Market, Car Show, music acts, and many other activities throughout the day.

Several food options will be available including "Fair Ice Cream" featuring several "fall" flavors, homemade pecan rolls in the morning, homemade pies in the afternoon. Kettle Corn, and chili cooked in a cast iron pot over the open fire will also be offered. Organizers have opened the festival up for local food trucks and food vendors to showcase their offerings as well. The fall Columbia City Farm Toy Show will be in the 4-H Center with the hours of 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Organizers are also adding more activities for kids for the festival. Several community groups are helping with these activities. Kids activities are planned including a Kiddie Pedal Tractor Pull. Weigh-in for this will be at noon in the Small Animal Barn. The pull will start at 12:30 p.m. Local 4-H Clubs will be doing activities and games geared toward kids from 10 am to 2 pm. Another of the highlights for kids will be milking Daisy the Cow from 1 to 2 p.m. in the Ag Museum. Several local music and entertainment acts will be performing throughout the day under the canopy by main concessions.
