2 days until the Harvest Festival!

There are only 2 days left until this years Harvest Festival at the Crossroads Point Farmers Market in Jerome, ID!  Last year was our very first year and it was a blast (no pun intended due to the high winds).  
Kids enjoyed the bouncy houses and giant pumpkin pyramid and parents enjoyed all the handmade goods sold by the local vendors.    

Our Market's director Kathy Bartholomew wore her gorgeous velvet witches cape with a bejeweled spider hanging from her hat. 
Pumpkins of all shapes and sizes were displayed.  There was even one that talked and had cool pumpkin sunglasses.
some of the delicious and pretty things made by our vendors last year.
We will also have our pumpkin pyramid and our 5 foot life-like pumpkin for display.

This year we are adding the gorgeous and realistic looking giant rooster and the chicken wrangler to pose by for pictures.

So wear your costumes, come on down for LOTS of fun, food, entertainment and games for  everyone!

Jerome County Fair Parade Float

A lot of time, energy and attention to detail went into this years float representing the Farmers Market at Crossroads Point Business Center.

It was well worth it because, as the picture above shows: 
WE WON 1st PLACE!  

We couldn't have made such a spectacular float without the help from some very talented friends.  So we'd like to give a shout out to the following businesses & people:


Arlo G. Lott Trucking
(208) 324-5053
Arlo let us use this gorgeous red semi-truck (which we later found out was a birthday present for him).  It was stunning!


Old Hickory Sheds
901 South Lincoln, Jerome
Mark Yoder (208) 324-1408
They let us use one of their gorgeous sheds to be placed on the float.  The quality and craftsmanship that goes into these sheds is astounding.


Moss greenhouses Inc.
(208) 324-1000
Moss's let us use whatever we needed.  So we had the (fun) task of looking through their gorgeous array of potted perennials to choose whatever we needed to really make the float pop with color! 


Lorna Irwin, wife of Dr. Irwin
The mind bogglingly-talented Lorna Irwin created this rooster from scratch using such innovative and out of the ordinary materials as water noodles, foam, paper mache, wood and PVC pipes!  GENIUS!


The Rodeo Chicken
Kathy was the friendly rodeo chicken. Kids and adults alike wanted to take a picture with her.  Who wouldn't want to have their picture taken with a giant chicken. Right?!


... last but not least we had lots of little helpers during the parade.  From singing and dancing on the float to entertain the onlookers, to throwing refreshing waters and otter pops to the crowd these little helpers were invaluable to the success of the float!
