- The Hawley Harvest Hoedown is set to take place on Saturday, Oct. 5 kicking off at 10 a.m.with a wide variety of traditional games, activities, craft vendors and entertainment.
While much of the Hoedown action will be centrally located on Main, Keystone and Church streets, the Downtown Hawley Partnership, which presents this event each year, reminds you to be sure to explore all of the shops, galleries, specialty retailers and eateries throughout the community.
Many businesses will be offering special activities and promotions to mark autumn harvest time at this annual event.
Start off your day browsing among the various vendors, while the kids (big kids, too!) try their hands at pumpkin decorating, face painting and games.
There will be scrumptious selections of old fashioned food items including baked goods, maple syrup, kettle corn, smoothies and more. Don't miss the popular pumpkin patch, listen carefully to the clippity-clop of horses' hooves on a hayride, and be sure to say "hello" to the animals at the petting zoo!
Numerous crafters will offer unique and one-of-a-kind handmade items, and farmers market selections such as apples, mums and corn stalks will also be available.
At approximately 12:30 p.m. you'll want to get a seat at the haybale theatre in the round near the Ritz Theatre marquee to hear this year's headliner entertainment when Freight Train Boogie returns with their own unique style of bluegrass and other tunes.
The Hawley Harvest Hoedown is supported by many, many community volunteers. Sponsors include Paupack Fuel Oil and Eastern Propane of Hawley.
