By Julia Johnson This Saturday (October, 14) as usually the second weekend of October in Billing everybody could visit Harvestfest. Harvest Festival is a celebration of the food grown on the land. Event located in the center of downtown Billings under Skypoint at 2nd Ave. The   finale   of   summer's   Farmers'   Market,   Harvestfest   celebrates   the   season   with   a   rich diversity   of   arts   and   crafts,   fresh   produce,   mums,   pumpkins,   pies,   and   the   final   offerings of    farmers'    market    produce.    Strollers    experience    the    aromas    of    food-truck    fare    like roasted   nuts,   steak   sandwhichs,   and   kettle   corn.   Live   entertainment   includes   fiddlers   and dancers   performing   under   Skypoint,   the   Pumpkin   Pie   baking   contest   judged   by   the   Chefs and   Cooks   of   Montana,   and   the   popular   Merchant   Gift   Basket   Raffle   featuring   a   tempting assortment   of   items   donated   by   local   businesses.   With   an   interactive   children's   area including   free   crafts   and   activities   for   all   ages,   this   event   draws   people   from   all   over   the northwest region into the streets and businesses of downtown. “I   participate   Harvestfest   already   second   time.   I   do   it,   because   I   like   downtown   effect really.   Everybody   here   together.   Its   real   good   time.   Also   I   did   the   strawberry   festival   and   the   farmers market” - told Jessie Hogsett. Her specialization is pure VT Maple Syrup and Products.  So   many   real   exciting   things   you   could   see   during   festival.   For   instance   Jeff   Schaezle,   professional stone   cutter,   show   how   he   can   use   his   talent   working   with   the   pumpkin. An   interview   with   Jeff   you   can find in one of the video we add to the article. “a  Heart for Stone” is his motto and when you see what he has done – you easily believe to him. What   people   real   love   about   Harvest   fest   is   seat   just   on   the   earth   in   the   heart   of   downtown   and   see all   that   dance   and   attractions!   The   best   is   possibility   to   participate.   For   example   visitors   had   real   fun while dancing with Native Americans musicians  Family dance. Amazing   experience   of   emberdance.   If   you   missed   that   opportunity   you   can   find   women   who   will teach   you   how   to   do   it   in   facebook   just   typing:   Emberdance   Collective.   “Here   we   because   of   several reasons.   We   want   to   be   more   active,   make   more   friends,   give   to   people   the   opportunity   to   engage with   our   community.   This   Is   so   much   fun.   I   don't   know   who   have   more   fun:   the   audience   or   us.   But   we   fell   for   each   other   and   it   is   fantastic   feeling. Even if person doesn't ever performed you real should dance its feeling so good!” - assured Jennifer Ries Nota   bene!    Many   communities   across   the   globe   participate   in   fall   festivities   in   honor   of   the   harvest   season.   Harvest   festivals   are   held   around   the   world from Australia   to   Sweden   to   India.   In   China   the   mid   autumn   festival   is   also   known   as   the   Moon   festival.   This   custom   is   thought   to   hark   back   to   ancient times   when   Chinese   offered   a   sacrifice   to   the   moon,   a   symbol   of   harmony   and   abundance.   Families   gather   to   eat   traditional   moon   cakes   and   many folk tales centre around a moon maiden
