Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Yorke Realty

Have you been to Harvestfest?  If you have, then I know you will be back this year.  If not, this is your chance!  The York Chamber of Commerce carries the full schedule.

Saturday's events center around both York Village and York Beach.  Those in the know skip the parking issue and take the free trolley from Short Sands beach or either the elementary, middle or high schools.  The opening parade is conducted in colonial dress.  From 10 to 4, there is a juried craft fair and a fabulous food festival.  Please stop by the Coldwell Banker Yorke Realty table and sample some of our chili.  Tell them Margaret Mitchell sent you!

Local musician, but widely known, Tim Janis will offer his uplifting music with a message.  A Fife and Drum Band also complements the colonial theme.

Children will be greatly entertained by the Kidsfest section offering crafts, games and face painting.

Not to be outdone, York Beach participates with a full day of events located at the Ballpark.  Crafters and Food Vendors will offer their wares in an Old Fashioned Marketplace.  There will be numerous community and non-profit raffles as well as (drum roll please) a corn toss challenge.

The day will conclude with Fireworks on Short Sands Beach!

On Sunday October 19, Short Sands Beach is also home to an Antique Car Show.  The Marketplace will continue and horse drawn carriage rides will also be offered.  Under the big tent, a Native American POW-WOW will include live entertainment and storytelling.  Harvestfest will conclude with the T-shirt raffle.  No, you don't win a T-shirt - your raffle ticket includes a free T-shirt or poster.  Local vendors have donated a variety of great prizes.

Please join us this weekend in York, Maine for Harvestfest.

Good Morning Margaret

I was there yesterday for a few hours.   Isn't it festive??   There were so many great booths there and I went by to see if you are at your booth, but missed you.    This is my favorite event the Chamber Hosts.

Chilly days have finally caught up with us......

See you soon!

Update:  Well, the office scheduled me for an open house on Saturday, so I missed Linda Peters visit by our booth on Saturday!!!  The office also scheduled me as "up agent" on Sunday so I missed those festivities, too!  However, I got a call from a great client on a piece of land that our office had just listed and thoroughly enjoy working with this smart client.  I missed Harvestfest in entirety but put two properties under contract.  Yippee!!!

Hi Margaret:  Great post.  York HarvestFest sounds like a lot of fun, but probably can't beat how you must have felt putting two properties under contract.  I am so glad that you are doing wonderful!
