Save the Date for Pendleton's Fall Harvest Festival on October 24, 2015

Vendors are starting to call the Pendleton Town Hall wanting to know about the application form and are being told that it is not quite ready but will be ready soon.  It will be posted on the Town Website, the Fall Harvest Festival Website and the Fall Harvest Festival Fan Page on Facebook.  It will also be emailed to all those vendors who have requested it.

I get excited just thinking about this fun family festival.  The vendors are always so wonderful, the food delicious and the entertainment is amazing.  It is a fun time for all ages with the old fashioned childrens games and bouncy toy for the kids.  Oh, and the scarecrows will be all over town for your viewing.  You will not want to miss one of them.

Also there will be a Historic Home Tour on Saturday and Sunday so make plans to do that, too!

Come join us in Pendleton, SC!
