Wausau Pilot & Review

As cooler weather approaches, Wausau Events is looking forward to their  Annual Harvest Fest event taking place next weekend. 

Harvest Fest is set from 10 a.m. to 2 p..m. on Oct. 9 at The 400 Block in Downtown Wausau. During the event, the square is transformed into a pumpkin patch with kid’s  activities and crafts, kid’s tractor pulls, a petting zoo and more.

The event is free to all  attendees and is family-friendly. 

“Many of our events are tradition for those that live in Wausau” said Alissandra  Aderholdt, Executive Director for Wausau Events. “Harvest Fest is an important  community event and creates a chance for families to get outside together during the  fall months. We are excited to bring our event back this year.” 

Each child ages 12 and under will receive a free pumpkin thanks to the following  sponsors: CoVantage Credit Union, Upper Iowa University, Tundraland, Rasmussen  University, BioLife Plasma Services, Great Lakes Cheese, Roastar and Midwest  Communications. Food donations will also be collected for Peyton’s Promise to help fill  local food pantries before the holiday season.
