Needham Business AssociationHarvest Festival this year is on October 4, 2008 between 10:00 am and 3:00 pm.
This is really one of my favorite events in town. It is great to see friends and enjoy the ushering in of the Fall. It is a hit for any age group. It is just a fun place to go.
One of the best features of the event is the "Souper Bowl" under the tent. It is a soup tasting of some of the restaurants in Needham along with a vote for the best tasting by the samplers and a select group of judges. Then there will be a "People's Choice" award given to the purveyor of the best soup. Generally there 8 to 14 soups to taste.
The town common transforms into a fair extraordinaire. There are tables organized by local merchants and a chance to sample their wares. There are all sorts of displays. Often a chiropractic demonstration. There are lots of food choices and popcorn popping.
There will be pony rides, hayrides,entertainment and activities for the children.
