Harvest Fest

“Howdy pawdner, step right up and enjoy North Upper’s home-baked pies!” The announcement crackles just as you step up for your first pumpkin toss. “Cherry cheesecake, only 45 cents,” blares North Upper. Your “pumpkin” misses the basket. (After a few more vain attempts.) Out of luck you move on and fish for a surprise in 1 & 2 Lower’s fishing pond. Turning to your right your attention is distracted by the howls coming from 1 & 2 Upper’s county jail. You stop and pay a small fee to have your best buddy locked up.

Trinity’s first annual Harvest Fest – an alternative to Halloween to which members of the community are invited - was celebrated on October 29th, 1977. By all accounts, it was a huge success.
