The fall season was officially rung in Sunday at the Harriman-Nielsen Historic Farm as hundreds of locals and out-of-county visitors invaded the farm grounds for food, music, contests, and fun on a crisp October afternoon.

     "A great crowd," said Berry Johnson, one of the board members from the farm who helped organize the annual event. "We really lucked out with the weather."

     The fall festival is in its 10th year and helps fund various things at the historic farm including site maintenance, restoration efforts, and the summer garden.

     The event – attended by several hundred people - featured contests, different types of produce and pumpkins for sale, demonstrations, music, and food.
