Harvest Day in the City

Harvest Day or Harvest Festival is an ancient celebrations of a successful harvest, mainly associated with fruit and vegetables.

In old times farmers celebrated the end of the harvest with a big meal, giving thanks to God for the food grown on the land.

Though held at various times throughout the world, common features of Harvest Day are singing, contests, kids' activities, farmers' market and the most important, eating.

This year Harvest day was held in my town on 1-2 October, Saturday and Sunday, organized by the City.

On Saturday farmers offered their product for a better price (for buyers) than on other days. In the evening, there were fireworks and all kind of entertainment.

Here are a few photos taken on Sunday evening:
Children love these water walking balls, though they are laying most of the time not walking.
