Don’t miss this special event. The Morton Grove Park District, the Morton Grove Historical Society, and the Farmers’ Market committee are collaborating on this autumn festival. The Harvest Fest during the Farmers’ Market runs from 8:00 am – 12:00 pm. Park District activities in Harrer Park following the market from 12:00 - 3:00 pm include arts and crafts, a petting zoo, hay rides, games, and live music.
Plan to stop in the Museum Education Center between 12:00 - 3:00 pm for activities and crafts exhibiting American Indian culture. View the on-site woodcarving demonstration by artist, Eric Widitz of Artwood Designs. Widitz plans to work with a chainsaw to create the likeness of a Potawotami Eagle Dancer, utilizing the 14 foot trunk of the Indian Marker Tree that was removed from Beckwith and Narragansett in Morton Grove.
