Headland preparing for annual Harvest Festival
HEADLAND, Ala. (WTVY) - The city of Headland is busy preparing for its Harvest Festival in the downtown square. The Harvest Festival is set for October 9th and 10th.
The event will feature live bands, food vendors, arts and crafts, holiday shopping and a 5K run.
Adrienne Wilkins with the Headland Chamber of Commerce says this year will be a little different due to COVID-19.
Vendors will be spaced out for social distancing, and there will be restroom trailers available for hand washing.
“So the Harvest Festival is so important to Headland,” Chamber Executive Director Adrienne Wilkins said. "Not only have we been celebrating our harvest for 49 years, but it makes a huge impact on our local economy. It really brings our community together. One of our favorite things about Headland is that our community loves to be together. Its a community that comes together, celebrates together, and this is a huge event for us. It gives everyone a sense of normalcy and then also just supports our business community that was really hit hard earlier this year.”
Registration for the 5K is ongoing.
The Harvest Street Dance on the Square kickoff is scheduled for Friday, October 9th from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
The Harvest Rundown 5K will be Saturday, October 10th beginning at 7 a.m. The run will benefit Headland High Cross County Team.
The Festival is scheduled on Saturday, October 10th from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
