November 7, 2015
Long ago, agricultural families in the Colonial Southeast and across America gathered every fall to give thanks and celebrate a bountiful Harvest season with a day of feasting, games, music and fun. To keep this spirited tradition alive, the Charleston County Park & Recreation Commission presents the 14th annual Harvest Festival at Mullet Hall Equestrian Center [Directions].
Come on down and enjoy some foot-stompin’ live music from five local bluegrass bands. There is plenty to keep the kiddies occupied including hay rides, a stick pony corral, pumpkin decorating, penny diving, archery, crafts and more. Feast on Southern delights like finger-lickin’ Carolina barbeque, kettle korn, and all of your favorite festival foods! Plus, there will be icy-cold beverages available for purchase. Once you’ve eaten your fill, head on over to the crafters market, great for holiday shopping!
Harvest Festival Group Run
Join us for a 3-mile fun run from 11 a.m.-12 p.m. Water will be provided on the route.
Archery Turkey Day Shoot
We won't really be shooting turkeys at this competition, but if you are ages 8-17 years, join us for a friendly target-shooting showdown. The male and female competitor with the overall highest score will have caught Thanksgiving dinner, as they will take home their own frozen turkey! GOBBLE, GOBBLE! Following the Turkey Day Shoot, we’ll have an open archery range for kids ages 8-17 years.
