Great Lakes and Upper South in the News: "Harvest Fair, Maker Faire share Wisconsin State Fair Park" from Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Dates: 26-28 September 2014
"Need a reason to take a shine to the annual Harvest Fair? How about the fact that admission is free?
New to the fair, which runs Friday through Sunday at Wisconsin State Fair Park, are professional and amateur pumpkin carvers who'll demonstrate their knife skills in a Colossal Pumpkin Carving contest from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
The Micro, the specialty beer section of the park, will feature more than 50 seasonal craft beers and 10 big-screen televisions for the Packers game. Bands include Trick Pony at 8 p.m. Friday, the Buckinghams at 4 p.m. Saturday and the Grass Roots at 8 p.m. Saturday.
Other activities, some ticketed, include pumpkin bowling, scarecrow making, amusement rides including a zip line, a pumpkin patch and farmers market, pony and camel rides, and an all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast until noon Saturday and Sunday.
Also, Maker Faire will make its debut at State Fair Park, 640 S. 84th St., West Allis, at the same time as Harvest Fair."
