All Hallows Eve Harvest & Gourd Festival

Posted Sep 5th, 2007 by Martin Nagy  Category: Arts & Entertainment

 

The All Hallows Eve & Gourd Harvest Festival will be celebrated at Seven Eagles Historical Education Center with extended hours on Friday, October 19 from 6-10 p.m. and Saturday, October 20 from 10 a.m. – 10 p.m.. Activities will also be expanded this year to include a gourd show and sale on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Located at 16486 Wapakoneta Road, just 1 mile south of the Village of Grand Rapids, Ohio, Seven Eagles is open to the public. This unique harvest event in such an historic environment is a lasting experience for families and friends.

All Hallows activities include hayrides, hands-on harvest craft activities, food, entertainment and a Trading Post stocked with arts, crafts, gourds and souvenirs along with live demonstrations in the historic venues during the event. When dusk falls each night, the pumpkin path will be lighted and the night will come alive with storytellers, bonfires, hayrides, re-enactors conducting lantern tours of the Native American Long House, Pioneer Log House, Blacksmith Shop and Catfish Inn. Come and make it a family event by carving a pumpkin, picnicking, canoeing, cane-pole fishing or throwing tomahawks.

A gourd show and sale of area gourd growers and gourd crafters will take place on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Northwest Ohio is fertile ground for gourds and many artists and crafters create beautiful and useful objects with gourds but have limited visibility for displaying and selling them. So, this is your chance to purchase or sell gourds and talk to those who grow and sell them. Interested gourd vendors should contact Martin Nagy at Seven Eagles. An admission fee of $2.50 per child or senior citizen, $5 per adult or $10 per family will be charged. Children age four and under admitted free. For more information contact Seven Eagles at 419-509-0095.

Seven Eagles Historical Education Center is owned and operated by the Arts Council Lake Erie West, a regional non-profit community arts agency providing arts and arts education programs and services for artists and the public since 1983. The Arts Council is partially funded by grants from the Ohio Arts Council and the Ford Motor Company.
