Gardeners, bakers, and canners are invited to enter the Home & Garden Competition at the 44th Annual Harvest Fair on September 29th & 30th.

Produce: Best Single Fruit, Best Single Vegetable, Best Collection, and more.
Flowers: Best Fresh Arrangement, Best Single Rose, Best Sunflower, and more.
Food: Best Apple Pie, Best Jam/Jelly, Best Salsa, Best Cookies/Dessert Bars, and more.
