Harvest Moon Festival 2016

Saturday, September 24th, downtown Ogden will host the 14th annual Harvest Moon Festival on Historic 25th Street from noon – 8 p.m. The last three years the offspring and I have attended. This is one of the highlights of our entire year and one of our favorite ways to celebrate the beginning of autumn. So many wonderful memories have been made and I can’t wait to see what’s in store for 2016!

Here’s what I’m most looking forward to:

The children’s activities from noon – 5 p.m. For only $3 kids get unlimited access to art projects, the climbing wall, face painting, and more. My kids have an annual rock-climbing competition. Marisol has won every year. Will she continue her winning streak?



The awesome crafts! Seriously, the kids LOVE all the fun crafts available. This year they will have an opportunity to participate in a community arts project.img_20140920_131501

Pumpkins and sunflowers for days…all the orange and yellow my emotional little heart desperately needs right now!



Fantastic local music, including one of my very favorites, The Mojave Nomads.

Amazing food from the restaurants on 25th Street.

The Sideshow Photo Booth! You do not want to miss stopping in to see the amazing job Bert and Pamela Godwin have done with the adorable Lucille. 13934780_885239454913249_7398332559041273317_n14359031_904999492937245_4147865751663649597_n(Above photos courtesy of Sideshow Photo Booth)

Lastly, word on the street is there’s a rad arm-wrestling competition and there just might be a few of the most rad ladies in Ogden participating.

Rain or shine, the festival will commence! So, bring your umbrella and head on down. I’ll see you there!

(Seriously, these pictures of the offspring from 2014 are killing me with the cuteness. Dang, these monsters have grown so much.)

I’m an Ogden native and I think this town is pretty rad. When I’m not adventuring with my offspring I can be found watching old VHS movies, hitting up the thrift store, or reading a book.
