Oakley Harvest Festival Set for Saturday


The City of Oakley invites the community to attend its 10th Annual Harvest Festival this Saturday, October 20th from noon to 4 p.m.

This event features old-fashioned fall activities for the family.  The pie eating contest is always a popular activity along, as are our two costume parades.  The first parade is for our canine friends and the second is a costume parade for all ages.  There is no fee to participate and the parades walk a short distance around the park.  Participating canines will receive a “doggy bag” and the children will receive a goody bag at the end of the parade.

There will be a children’s area with balloon art, bounce houses and crafts.  Local dance troupes will perform in the amphitheater.  Guests may bring a pre-decorated pumpkin to enter into the Pumpkin Decorating Contest.
