Pendleton’s Twelfth Annual Fall Harvest Festival, sponsored by the Clemson Area Chamber of Commerce and the Pendleton Area Council, will be held on the Village Green in Pendleton on Saturday, October 9th. The festival will run from 10AM to 5PM, and will feature quality crafts, entertainment, food vendors, old-fashioned children’s games and fine family fun. Crowd-pleasing banjo player, Charles Wood, will be performing again this year, along with the Pendleton Swingers, a fabulous square-dance group who will make you want to dance!
The fourth ever “Bubba-Bake-Off” will also be held, featuring local fellas showing off their most(ly) creative baking skills! If last year’s entries are any indication, this is an event that would make Betty Crocker proud and that will tickle you good! Cakes will be auctioned by our very own Danny Ford, with proceeds going to “Step Up to the Plate,” a fundraising campaign to renovate the ball fields at our Veterans Park.
Annual Ride for Raptors is scheduled to kick off this great event. There are three routes that a rider can choose from: a fun 25 mile ride for family and friends, a metric century of 66 miles for the athletic rider and a century of 100 miles for the really serious rider. All routes have rest areas with water and snacks. This charitable bicycle ride donates all proceeds to Carolina Raptor Center (CRC), a regional rehabilitation and education center that serves Western NC SC and admits over 700 injured or orphaned raptors every year. These birds are critical to a healthy environment. They help control the populations of squirrels, rodents, and snakes in our backyards and neighborhoods and they provide diversity to the eco-systems we depend on for our own survival.
Zlaty, a golden eagle, is an annual visitor to Ride for Raptors. Zlaty is a permanent resident and education ambassador for CRC. He was found in with a severe wing injury in 1985 and came to CRC shortly afterwards. He is one of over 100 permanent residents at the Center. Come see Zlaty on October 9.
