Harvest Faire in Ione - Sat Oct 12

When Linus looks for the Great Pumpkin this year, he might want to check out Ione Business and Community Association’s Harvest Faire. On Saturday, October 12th, starting at 8:30 am, Main Street in Ione will host a Pumpkin Contest, Scarecrow Contest, Chalk the Walk, Dog Costume Contest, and Vendor Booths. Events occur all day long and festivities conclude at 4 pm.

The Pumpkin Contest brings increasingly larger pumpkins every year. The word is that growers from Auburn, are planning to bring some of their sizeable pumpkins to compete this year. The cash prize for the heaviest pumpkin is $1,000 for the winning adult, 18 and up, and $500 is the prize for the kids’ age group. Weirdest and Best Decorated/Carved are the other categories available for bragging rights. Check-in for largest pumpkin is 9:00 am and awards occur at noon. For Weirdest and Best Decorated or Carved, check-in is at noon and awards happen at 3:30 pm; pumpkins may be picked up at 4 pm. If you choose not to take your pumpkin home, your pumpkin will be donated to Preston Castle’s Halloween Haunt.

Chalk the Walk takes place on both sides of Main Street, on the sidewalks of downtown Ione. Chalk is provided and the event is free to all who wish to display their artistic talent, as long as your knees can take it. Prizes are awarded to Kids and Adults.

The Scarecrow Contest has a $500 cash prize. Build your own scarecrow, starting at 9 am that day, and compete for cash prizes, which will be awarded at 2:30 pm. Scarecrows will be on display in downtown Ione through Halloween. Categories are ages: 10 and under, 11 to 16, and 17 and up.

The Dog Costume Contest is the chance for your best friend to shine. Categories are: Scariest, Prettiest, Most Festive, and Looks Like Owner. Mike and Cherie Flores of Gold Country Pet Resort are conducting this event. Check-in is at 10 and awards are at 1 pm. Gold Country Pet Resort also plans a Canine Demonstration at 2 pm.

Vendor booths will fill the parking lot by City Hall. You will be able to buy pumpkins, arts and crafts. If you are interested in taking a space, contact Skip Schaufel, at 256-3158.
