Litratong Pinoy #87: Publiko (Public)


Last Sunday, my sister and I went to a Harvest Festival next town. It's an annual event with fun rides, craft and vintage items for sale and German booze and bratwurst that went on for years until they stopped doing it a long time ago. This year, they brought it back. It was my first time to go to this autumnal public gathering.


It was a good thing the sun shone the day prior to this event, because we had a few days of rain which had briefly flooded the festival grounds. It would have been so frustrating for a lot of families if the much-awaited comeback of this event got postponed.


There were big, shiny firetrucks from that town. We love firetrucks. And I love firemen.


They have a "tricky tray," which is just a tricky little way of saying "raffle".


OMG! A headless beer maiden! Poor fraulein! I know, it's just paper decor.


There was a farmer's market selling fall favorites. It's hardly a "harvest festival" without these!


I've carved pumpkins for Halloween before, but have never painted them like these.


Crafty vendors sold interesting things like these pinecone-shaped "firestarters," presumably to use at your fireplace, not to be pyromaniacs. Or maybe to be used as regular scented candles.


Wooden lawn decor for the "ber" holidays!


This porky sign is actually for the antiques section, not for meats as one might think.


There was even a "Berry-Go-Round" which I thought was berry cute! I hope next year's Fall Festival will be bigger and better!

First time ko ma-experience ang Harvest/Fall Festival dito, isang sikat na pampublikong pagtitipon tuwing Autumn. Eto na kasi ang huling hirit na magpakasaya outdoors habang di pa umuulan ng snow. Namigay sila ng libreng reusable tote bag. Nawala ko pa ang lens cap ng camera ko sa sobrang paglilitrato...buti na lang may mabait na babaeng nakapulot nito sa damuhan at sinoli sa akin nung nakita niya akong naglilitrato. Akala ko tuloy oorder pa ako ng Nikon lens cap sa Ebay! Hehe.

I love fall harvest festivals and I love scented pines even more. They just make your home so inviting and warm.
