Harvest Festival ends with smiles, prizes

Aunt Candy of Aunt Candy’s Toy Company was thrilled with the turnout during the last weekend of Harvest Festival, especially the tons of kids in the annual costume contest. Cars lined the streets of Rockford right up past the business district for Saturday’s events, which included free horse-drawn hayrides, a petting zoo, mascots and more.

Costume contest winners stand with their prizes. Judging was very difficult this year.

 

The Heart of Rockford Business Association organized the third weekend of Harvest Festival, which was a great success. A petting zoo at Garden Club park with pony rides drew children. Mascots, such as Roo Bucks from the Rockford Community Federal Credit Union, spread cheer among the crowd.

This little girl liked Roo until he got close, then she was done with him.
