To celebrate the harvest season, Gull Lake is hosting its first Harvest Festival on Sept. 13 from 3-7 p.m.
A special event takes place at 2 p.m., one hour before the festival officially starts, with the unveiling of the Wong Guy Shoe Shop heritage plaque. The shoe shop will also open its doors to the public for the first time in more than three decades, allowing residents and visitors the chance to see the inside of the shop, which has remained untouched since the late 1970s.
At 3 p.m., everything kicks off with a multitude of activities for the entire family. The Gull Lake Seniors’ Club will provide meals for everyone, and music will also be provided throughout the festivities.
Some of the activities include, but are by no means limited to:
• A photo booth where visitors can dress up in various costumes and have their photo taken.
• A bouncy castle provided by the Village of Hazlet.
• A Pitch Burst, which is a fun game that allows visitors to soak various members of the town, including Mayor Blake Campbell, in water from a water balloon.
• Innovation Credit Union’s mascot will be on hand to interact with the children.
• A scarecrow contest. Dress up as your best scarecrow and win a prize.
• A quilt contest. Bring your best homemade quilt to the event.
• A pie eating contest.
• The Heritage Walking Tour of Gull Lake will also kick off, allowing residents to explore the history of the businesses in the area.
• A 50/50 draw.
In addition, the Gull Lake Community Market will be running at the same time, outdoors if weather permits. If you want to have a table at the community market, the one-time special rate is $20 per table (regular $25).
