Fun time at the Gold Oak Harvest Festival

From page B3 | October 26, 2012 |

Every year hundreds of children, moms, dads, grandparents and neighbors come to the Gold Oak Harvest Festival at 3171 Pleasant Valley Road in the Pleasant Valley area.

This year the festival is on Saturday, Oct. 27 from 4:30 to 8:15 p.m.

Organizers are pumping up the volume a little — literally — with the center stage appearance of Atlas and Arrows, a local indie folk band with Pleasant Valley roots.

Along with a whole bunch of new events, visitors will enjoy the Always-Awesome Haunted House created by Pleasant Valley Middle School, an old-fashioned cakewalk, and the All-Time Favorite Trick-or-Treat Alley.

There will also be a costume contests (best individual and group), “tattoos” and crazy hairspray booth, bobbing for apples, doughnuts, spooky story time, Silly String corral, handmade crafts and a 50/50 raffle.

The incredible edibles include pulled pork sandwiches, barbecued burgers, pizza, roasted corn, kettle corn, cotton candy, hot drinks and yummy desserts.

Play some carnival games and take part in the lollipop pull.

Last but far from least, check out the amazing raffle baskets put together by the classes and sponsored by 15 local businesses.

Baskets range from a heavy-duty garden wagon filled with goodies and paired with a full cord of wood, to a galvanized washtub filled with everything for the highfalutin hillbilly, even a camouflage toilet seat!

The festival organizers encourage residents to drop by the business sponsors and take a gander at the goodies — and buy a raffle ticket or two.

This year’s sponsors are: Charles B. Mitchell Winery, Country Elegance, Crossroads Veterinary Hospital, Flowers on Main, Front Yard Nursery, The Goldsmith, Holly’s Hill Winery, Kiddlywinks, Placerville Hardware, Pleasant Valley Ace Hardware, Pleasant Valley Pizza Factory, Select Video, Sierra Bushman, Tree House and Zia’s.

All the funds raised directly benefit Gold Oak students.
