Harvest Festival 2013
Large crowds of people having fun. Sometimes a few words sum up a many-faceted thing such as Harvest Weekend, when Gorge Fruit and Craft Fair fills the buildings at Hood River County Fairgrounds and Hood River Harvest Festival packs the Event Site and Lot 1.
Large crowds of people having fun.
Sometimes a few words sum up a many-faceted thing such as Harvest Weekend, when Gorge Fruit and Craft Fair fills the buildings at Hood River County Fairgrounds and Hood River Harvest Festival packs the Event Site and Lot 1.
Hood River News sent seven people to both events Friday through Sunday to capture, in words and pictures, the many flavors of the Festival and Fair. (The sampler continues to page B2.)
Meanwhile, what’s next in the orchards of Hood River valley?
The Hood River County Fruit Loop Heirloom Apple Celebration takes place Saturday and Sunday, and honors apples now known as “heirloom” or “classic” varieties, which can trace their heritage back 100 years or more.
Highlights include perry (pear) and apple ciders available at numerous locations, including Hood River Vineyards on the west side of the valley, and the annual Edelweiss Day at Mountain View Orchards and Fruit Stand near Parkdale on Oct. 26, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., celebrating the Swiss heritage of the farm.
