There’s no better way to celebrate the arrival of fall in the Pacific Northwest than with fresh apple cider, pumpkin carving, family and friends. That is exactly what could be found at Evergreen’s 33rd annual Harvest Festival.

Adults and children alike celebrated the harvest by sipping on freshly pressed cider while carving pumpkins, bobbing for apples and enjoying the melodies of the local musicians.  There was also the option to sit in on one of the 15 workshops offered, or take a tour of the gardens.  Local vendors were also on hand to sell their delicious treats and handcrafted items.

The Harvest Festival was sponsored and organized by Evergreen Community Gardens, one of Evergreen’s oldest student clubs.
