Cranberry Harvest Celebration 2015

Last year I went to the annual Cranberry Harvest Celebration for the first time. You can read about it more here! We had such a great time that we knew we'd be back this year. It did not disappoint. It was a couple weekends ago and the weather could not have been more perfect!


I love the contrast between the color of the cranberries and the color of the sky. It is just so beautiful! This is what is called a "wet harvest" where they "flood" the cranberry bog to make all the cranberries float and then they can gather them!





We ran into one of my college friends, Danielle! It was so nice to catch up with her and her family (and she is the one who originally told me about this awesome event so only fitting I would see her there)!



The festival is divided into two sections - this section is where you can actually see the cranberries being harvested, go on a wagon ride through the tour, see an owl show and there are tents with lots of samples! The other side of the festival has lots of food vendors, crafts, and activities for the kids. It is a huge festival!









The sky was so blue! It was so nice to be outside all day but let me tell you it is a long day! I was exhausted by the time we left! They really do a nice job putting this festival together and I'm so glad I got to go again this year. This fall really has been amazing weather wise and living in New England gives so many great opportunities to really enjoy fall! I love it!

  2. This looks like so much fun! I'm actually surprised that they don't do anything like that here in Central Wisconsin cuz we have TONS of cranberry bogs around here.
