Annual Morgan's Raid Festival - Click
here for additional information
The Festival Plans are
coming along fine and beginning to fall into Place. There will
be booths of local artisans and craftsmen, food, blue grass &
folk music, door prizes, 50/50 drawings and much more! The entertainment
schedule is posted on the festival website posted for your viewing.
We plan on making it a fun day
by the participants dressing in clothing of the civil war - 1860's
era, having apple cider, pumpkin pies, and many other items that
would have been found during that era. We hope to have displays
of some of the local history to help people learn more of the
part that Harrisville played in the Civil War. Hope to see
you at the Festival!
Park with Gazebo

Morgan's Raid Festival, The Harrisville Society of Friends is

will be used for the grand stage and entertainment at the festival.
Other uses for the gazebo will be for summer music concerts,
Easter egg hunts for the children, Memorial Day Celebrations,
Presentation of Contest Prizes, Awards and Certificates, Weddings,
etc.! There are many things that are within the memorial park
plans. Once completed, the park will have: Gazebo, Flag Pole
with Light, Memorial Monument, Water Fountain, Christmas Tree
with Lighting, Benches, Bulletin Board, Chimes, and much more!

the park's progress.
