WELCOME to the Harvest Fest, says Hood River’s Jeanie Watts, who stayed busy Sunday after-noon greeting guests, handing out festival pamphlets and stamping hands with a bright orange pumpkin logo. As one of the Harvest Festival’s many friendly volunteers, Watts greeted thousands of people over the weekend — this year wearing sunglasses and sunscreen instead of a rain jack-et — in what has to be one of the most pleasant weather weekends in the event’s history.
