The Flavours of Fall

Celebrating the harvest has always been a feature of agricultural societies and Hastings County is no exception.

This year Belleville held it's "Flavours of Fall" festival with tasty $2 apple-themed snacks at many downtown restaurants, as well as pumpkin carving in Market Square, horse drawn wagon rides, free movies, balloon art, a hot dog and chili cook out, live music, street dancing and a lot more.

And the Society opened it's storefront office at 208 Front Street to visitors.

As usual, it got very busy and we lost track of how many visitors came in to look at the displays.  Our estimate is about 150, and we enjoyed meeting you all.

Some of the volunteers who helped at the storefront office on Saturday:
