The 14th Annual Harvest Fair, sponsored by the SPTO, will take place at the Sherman School on Saturday, October 14, from Noon to 4 p.m.
Rain or shine, it’s a fun family event that you don’t want to miss!
For a third year in a row, the local “After Hours Band” will perform live classic rock & pop tunes.
As for what’s new, children can climb a monkey bridge built by the Sherman Boy Scouts, design a wood sculpture with the Sherman Cub Scouts, and play a neat scarecrow game with Four Seasons Therapy.
Two, new surprise arts & crafts stations, sponsored by the JCCS and The Sherman Sentinel, will also be unveiled.
Try a game of Chess & make stained glass name art with Robbyn’s Nest as well.
All of the classics are back, too. Kids always love to build UPCYCLE! crafts with Little Munchkins, bounce in an inflatable obstacle course with the SDTC, win prizes at the Cake Walk Spectacular with the SRTC, decorate cookies with American Pie Company cookies and Sherman IGA extras, donut bob with Julia’s Wings, get nails painted at the Amore Table, create “I am Thankful for…” signs with the Girl Scouts, and build crafts with Home Depot Kids Workshop kits.
More must-dos on the list… Play Bingo to win prizes, enter a pumpkin decorating contest, get a face painted or an arm tattooed, and climb a monster truck, Sherman ambulance and antique tractor, too!
What’s more, several local businesses are donating prizes and supplies: Agway, All Aboard Pizza, American Pie Company, Amore, Bank Street Movie Theater, Big Y, BJs, Carvel, Four Seasons Therapy, The Goodie Shoppe, Hair By Susi, Happy Rainbows, Holiday Restaurant, Judson’s Farm Market, Home Depot of New Milford, Laser Planet, Litchfield County Pickers, Nordica Toys, Play, Sacred Grounds Coffee Roasters, Sherman IGA, The Sherman Sentinel, Sherman Playhouse, Staples, Starbucks, Stephanie Spinner Children’s Books, Thompson’s Fine American Comfort Food, Town Tribune, Stop & Shop of New Fairfield & New Milford, and Webster Bank of Sherman.
The cost is $10 per child at the door, or $25 maximum per family, and the main event is free for adults.
However, bring extra money just in case you’d like to buy gently used costumes for Halloween or dress-up. Class fundraisers like Concessions, Haunted Hallway and full face painting cost extra.
We hope you can make it!
