Bean soup, brats, and pumpkins; It's Fall Festival at Harriman-Nielsen Historic Farm

One of the biggest events of fall in Franklin County is this weekend, as the Harriman-Nielsen Historic Farm hosts its 10th annual fall festival, where there will be a wide range of activities, food, and fun for all.

     The event – slated to take place from 2-5 p.m. Oct. 6 – is a family-friendly event, said volunteer Doreen Petersen, and will have live music, hot food, demonstrations, tours, numerous contests with fall-themes, and an overall fun time for everyone who attends.

     "We're busy getting ready for it. Children can come out to the garden and pick their own pumpkins. Of course, we have beans for the bean soup we'll be serving," Petersen said. "We'll be having live music, the 4-H clubs will be having games for the kids to play. It's definitely a family event."

     "Last year they said we had over 1,000 people,  " Petersen added. "We'll try to beat that this year."
