The Fall Harvest Festival in historic Pendleton, SC is a fun time for the entire family with crafts, great food, entertainment and old fashioned children’s games and activities including a Pie Eating contest and Face Painting. Crowd-pleasing banjo player, Charles Wood, will start the entertainment. He will be followed throughout the day with performances by Elevation Dance Co and Carolina Superstars. Local singer, musician and songwriter, Jessica Ticko, will share her talents at 1:15 and the very talented TJ Land will be pickin’ to get you grinnin later in the day.
The Blood Connection returns from 10-3 and will be giving away free Clemson or Carolina T-shirts to donors. (Blood Connection Donor Card or Photo ID required).
You will be able to vote for your favorite Scarecrow, too. Scarecrows will be all around town so take time to find these wonderful friendly creations. The Fall Harvest Festival will be from 10 to 5 pm around the square.
