We are excited in Valley Home as we celebrate our harvest season. Please join us this Saturday evening for our Valley Home School Fall Harvest Festival! Come; visit with friends and family while enjoying a delicious harvest dinner. Enjoy a fun game of Bingo, play carnival games, bid on great class baskets and silent auction items! Walk through our delightful fall pumpkin patch; take a pumpkin home for Halloween. Sit and enjoy a delicious slice of pumpkin pie, have a warm cup of chocolate or a hot cup of coffee brewed especially for our Harvest Festival. Enjoy tasty treats from our Sweet Shoppe! Have fresh hot buttery popcorn, caramel corn or an ice cold slushee or maybe enjoy fluffy pink cotton candy!

With rice, once being one of the main crops grown in Valley Home, please come see a very special piece of machinery. Recently this harvester brought in one of the last rice fields growing in Valley Home. We will also have on display an amazing 1942 Johnny Popper; a very special tractor with an amazing Valley Home history! We will also pay tribute to the Harvest Season with several samples of crops raised in and around our area! We are excited to welcome our First Responders; come say hello to these very special men and women! Enjoy a ride on our Haunted Hayride, see creepy Agony Bagbones, hear him cry out for help; hear the sounds of terror and see the sights of horror as you ride the Haunted Hayride to …?

Come and enjoy all this under a beautiful Harvest moon! Wear your costume and enter the costume contest at 6:15pm, followed by pie/pudding eating contest, milk drinking contest; you may also sign up at the slushee booth to enter the “Scavenger Hunt” ... the first ten people to return all required items will win a very special drink! You are invited to bring your carved pumpkin and/or your decorated pumpkin and enter them in our contest, just bring to the pumpkin patch! This year we also invite everyone to bring your scarecrow entry to the Harvest Festival. Hopefully some of the scarecrow entries survived Sunday’s storm! Please join us for the fun, this Saturday, October 30th, 6pm to 9 pm at Valley Home School
