HARTFORD, Ky. — While a shower or two and the consistent threat of rain may have kept some away on Saturday, last weekend’s 2017 Harvest Festival can only be considered a success.

In recent years past, very few vendors outside of those selling food ever set up on the first day of the Harvest Festival. That wasn’t the case for 2017 as the sidewalks of downtown Hartford were lined with folks selling just about anything people would want. Ceramics, clothes, food, crafts, jewelry, and more.

A large crowd also attended Saturday morning’s parade.

Hartford city council member Edwina Sheffield, volunteer Sharilyn Ward, and the city put together a festival with lots of live music, food, pageants, and activities and the increased attendance showed.
