Historical Society Harvest Fair

The unusually high temperatures gave the fresh lemonade vendor a windfall of profits

 

The lawn was full with over 60 vendors offering a variety of hand made items and collectibles.

Tony Lulek of Little Beehive Farm in Holliston is a regular vendor at the Harvest Fair.

Shade trees and pop up tents kept vendors and visitors as cool as could be expected.

Even the animals from PJ Kilkelly's farm were feeling the heat. AgCom president PJ Kilkelly, below right, was providing information about pending legislation which would define where farm animals can and cannot be housed in Holliston.

Special auxiliary officer David Charette crossed visitors from 8 AM to 4PM.

The barn carried refreshments and several vendors and a large selection of items were available on the silent auction table.

The Stickneys posed for pictures all day with Tim Drake's tractor.

This gentleman, who spoke no English, managed to get Bill to agree to a picture. Apparently people like Bill are scarce where he comes from. Come to think ot it, there is only one in our area.

New this year, pick letters from a wide variety of styles, spell a name or place, and the vendor frames the selection right there and you're off with a nice memento for only $5.00 per letter, framed.

Always In Season from Framingham was back again this year to play their old fashioned music for vendors and visitors.

More than 150 people visited the Asa Whiting house opened to the public for a few hours.

Inside, society members, Like Joanna Hilliard, explained the decor and answered questions about the history of the house.

In the great room, visitors saw displays from the society's collection and kept society's Pat Pareira laughing.

Above, Carol Kosicki, left, and Nancy Lamb, right, talk with a visitor.

A face painting booth with Taylor Dunham as the artist was very popular. The boy in the black shirt is not sure what he wants to do. Authentic Auto Body sponsored a booth for kids to paint wooden cars.

The bouncy house was popular even in the heat of the day.

The real heat was in the kitchen as society members cooked gallons of chili, eggplant parm and hot dogs.
