Why is this cow smiling? It’s the fourth annual Salem Area Chamber of Commerce HarvestFest! Come to the strange and wonderful world of Salem Art Works (SAW) Saturday, Sept. 10 at 10am and get ready to party. There’s an all-day craft fair (with special children’s area for fun activities), local produce and goodies , art activities and live demonstrations like glassblowing and blacksmithing. Then, at 6pm there’s the “farm to fork” dinner with – and people, we’ve been over this – the finest, freshest food on the planet. This is Washington County, after all. Al and Kathy Bain will be providing the entertainment (back by popular demand) and then there’s the barn dance and…oh, just trust me. It’s a lot of fun and tickets are going fast, so pick them up at most any business in Salem or try your luck and just come out and see what all the fuss is about. Ticket prices are – get this – $20 for adults and $6 for kids under 10. Tickets to the barn dance only are $10 per person or $15 per couple. And did I mention the silent auction? See you there!
