SAFFORD – With all the holiday favorites from pumpkin carving and face painting, crafts, games, entertainment, food, and a large variety of vendors, the annual Harvest Festival in Downtown Safford was well-received Saturday.
The event was chockful of vendors lined up and down Main Street while dance shows from the Safford Dance Academy and live music entertained those in attendance.
The weather was enjoyable, and there were various free activities and giveaways at the festival for one to take part in.
After a day of pumpkin carving, painting, eating, and perusing the various shops, the event turned to Octoberfest and a beer garden was set up while the live music returned to the stage to continue the festivities that evening.
