Food trucks, crafts, games and bird exhibits are all part of this annual fall festival at Oak Mountain.
There is a crispness in the air this weekend, and it is a sign that fall is here – at least for now. And the annual Harvest Festival is at Oak Mountain State Park this weekend to help usher in the season.
The festival, which takes place October 13, begins at 9 a.m., and includes food vendors, outdoor games like corn hole and giant checkers, mining for gems and painting pumpkins. Multiple bounce houses and an inflatable slide are also available for kids, as well as pony rides provided by the Rusted Roof Barn.
Other feature of the event will be a meet and greet with the Alabama Wildlife Center’s Education Ambassadors, complimentary hay rides, goods for sale from vendors, an early morning yoga class on the beach and arts and crafts all day.
For outdoors enthusiasts, the Alabama Department of Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries have signed on to offer a complimentary fishing clinic to any interested children during the Harvest Festival, with all supplies provided. As well, the Alabama Wildlife Center will be at the Harvest Festival with a variety of their glove trained education raptors for people to get an up-close look at these creatures.
Age three and under are free, age 4-11 are $2 each, age 12-61 are $5 each, and age 62+ are $2 each. Military and Veterans are free.
