Adams County Harvest Festival returns to Lind on Aug. 25


August 2, 2018

Downtown Lind will once again host the Adams County Harvest Festival on Aug. 25.

The first harvest festival was held last year and sponsored by the Lind Chamber of Commerce.

Diane Kennedy, who generated the idea of the festival, is once again organizing the event. She explained the festival is a way to recognize and celebrate Adams County farmers.

She added the festival is also an opportunity to bring Adams County residents together in Lind. She hopes the festival will grow into an event involving all of the municipalities in the county.

One way Kennedy is promoting the event is with the Farmers Board.

A business or individual can donate money to have their name listed on the board, which will be displayed in Lind throughout the month of August.

She added a portion of the funds generated from the sales will benefit Adams County youth organizations.

The festival will feature county vendors located the north side of Second Street, between E and I streets, beginning at 10 a.m. Kennedy said she is reaching out to businesses and organizations in Adams County to participate in the event.

Attendees who are 21 years and older can go to the beer garden at Slim’s Bar and Grill, which opens at 6 p.m. The restaurant portion of the business will open at 11 a.m.

Kennedy said Slim’s Owner Floyd “Skip” Thompson will donate a portion of the proceeds from the beer garden to the Lind Calvary Assembly of God Church.

The festival’s street dance returns for the second year and will begin at 8 p.m. The Spokane River Band will once again perform at the event.

The Spokane River Band is a four-piece band covering country, blues, classic rock and pop music. The group consists of Rusty Jackson on vocals and bass, John Gray on guitar, Duane Becker on steel guitar and keyboard, Brad Jeanes on drums and Alisha Kendall on vocals.

Kennedy said the band was brought back for the festival by popular demand.

Businesses who would like to donate to the Farmers Board, or participate as a vendor for the event can contact Kennedy at The Swag Shop at 677-3389. She is also seeking volunteers to help organize and run the festival.
