Union's Harvest Festival is planned for all day, Oct. 27. There will be local food, crafts, businesses, and history for all.
A costume contest will begin at Union High School's band room at 10:30 a.m., followed by a parade at noon from the school to the city park. At the park, music, crafts, artists, a cake walk and good food will be featured.
Activities for children will include a pumpkin painting workshop sponsored by artist Jon Hanley and games sponsored by the Eastern Oregon Mediation Center.
There will be hay rides from the park to the cemetery, where Donna Patterson of the Union Victorian Cemetery Board will share its history. The final activity will be the Night Fright Haunted House, Dead Men Tell No Lies, in the Union Hotel. It's billed as scary, not gory. Younger children can enjoy reduced fright for $6 from 3-5 p.m., and the grown-up version will be from 7-10 p.m. during which admission is $9.
