It’s that time of year when hundreds of kids, moms, dads, grandparents and neighbors come to the Gold Oak Harvest Festival to support Gold Oak Elementary School.
All are welcome to this free festival at Gold Oak School, 3171 Pleasant Valley Road in the Pleasant Valley area, on Saturday, Oct. 26 from 4:30 – 8:15 p.m.
The theme this year is Heroes. Firefighters, policeman, veterans, teachers, and everyone who is a hero every day in El Dorado County will be celebrated. Caped crusaders are also welcomed.
Enjoy hip and kid-friendly music by guest DJ Visual Sounds, the ever popular old-fashioned cakewalk and of course the all-time favorite Trick or Treat Alley.
Everyone is encouraged to wear Halloween finery and make the most of everything at the festival including: costume contests, crazy hair and glitter “tattoo” booth, bobbing for apples, Silly String corral, handmade crafts and local vendors, awesome raffle baskets, carnival games and lollipop pull, and incredible edibles like pizza, sandwiches, grilled corn and hotdogs, hot drinks and yummy desserts.
Themed baskets will be up for raffle and there will also be a 50/50 raffle where the winner takes home half the proceeds.
Tickets will be on sale on site at the Harvest Festival for the games and events. Basket raffle tickets can be purchased at local business sponsor sites or at the Harvest Festival. This year’s sponsors include: Pleasant Valley Ace Hardware, Holly’s Hill Winery, Front Yard Nursery, Jamba Juice, Pleasant Valley Pizza Factory, Placerville Hardware and Schlotsky’s.
All the funds raised directly benefit Gold Oak Students.
