Harvest Festival (SDC)

Welcome to the All-New Harvest Festival, featuring Craft Days

There is a lot more produce being used as decorations this year.

The new gourd tree is very impressive.

Craft Days features a lot of the traditional crafters on the square

However it was noticeable that there were not as many this year as there has been in the past.

Since it is October - we are contractually required to have a pink display

There were several pumpkin crafters on display.

Brown's Candy Store


There was also a Time Traveler worker

More produce on display near Time Traveler

Additional craft booths near Boatworks Theater

and even more across from the Saloon at the bottom of Hill Street

In the Frisco Barn, "Best of Hands" is back with some amazing products on display

In the Red Gold Courtyard, there is a personalized pumpkin carving stand.

The big new show for Craft Days was Cirque Eloize's Lumberjacks

This Cirque inspired show took a vague theme of Lumberjacks and incorporated cirque acts to tell a story

The feats of strength and agility were very impressive

Even if you don't understand the storyline, you can still enjoy the cirque acts.

The Cyr wheel act was pretty cool.

Stacking lumberjacks to get that high branch.  That has to be the reason, right?

Teeterboard act

It was a fun show - just go in expecting a cirque show and don't overthink it and you'll have a good time.

The light up souvenirs have come out, so it must be about time for Pumpkin Nights to start
