SEPTEMBER'S HARVEST MOON - Tonight, if the clouds move on ... look up at September's Harvest Moon. It is the first full moon of the fall harvest season. Why is it called a Harvest Moon? The abundance of bright moonlight early in the evening was a traditional aide to farmers and crews harvesting their summer-grown crops, hence the “Harvest” Moon. Now you know!
MUSIC AT THE MARKET: 3:30 - 6:00 PM
Local Musician, Garrett Mabe, will be filling the marketplace with his renditions of classic and light rock songs! Garrett is no stranger to the locals as he performs at a number of local venues, both as a solo artist and with his band, The Garrett Mabe Trio along with other bands, such as The Spokes.
