Noted local watercolor artist Jim Karjala will join the lineup of popular participants at the Cambria Historical Society’s (CHS) Harvest Festival. The annual event takes place this Saturday, October 9, from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Cambria Historical Museum and Heirloom Gardens (2251 Center Street at Burton Drive).

     Admission is always free to the public, with something for everyone of all ages:   vendors, crafts booths, and children’s activities.  Food will be available from Soto’s True Earth Market, as well as artisan beer and wine … also the customary Root Beer Floats all around!   Acoustic guitarist Bob Benjamin will play beginning at 1:00 p.m.  The attractive scarecrow display outside by CHS members includes Pippi Longstocking with her big horse.

     The Museum will be open for self-guided tours, and the gift shop for browsing, with  Covid-19 procedures in effect.  No admission is charged, but donations are welcomed since the venue’s operation is totally self-sustaining.  CHS is campaigning to increase its docents and garden helpers, as well as business and family members, so please join with us this month.
