Harvest Festival. Saturday, 10-2, Coupeville Farmer’s Market. FREE. Scarecrow corridor winners will be announced, giant pumpkin contest, team relay races…why would you miss the udder pull contest? Teams had to raise $100 in donations to Gifts from the Heart Foodbank. Bookies will be on hand during the races to bring the crowd to a feverish pitch. I’m told it’s legal gambling…even with 1 team consisting of elementary school soccer kids and it’s for a good cause. I’ll be out of town, but you should go!
