The Battle Ground Chamber is gearing up for the 2016 Harvest Days festivities, and it looks like this year’s celebrations are going to shape up nicely.
With 107 entries, last year’s Fred Meyer Grand Parade was improved over past years with lots of great variety representing so very many businesses, groups and individuals from Battle Ground and the surrounding area. The 4th Annual Harvest Nights Car Cruise, presented by Wrench Works, was a spectacular gathering of the community enjoying more than 400 classic and custom cars.
Last year, we brought back the 3rd Annual Geocaching Challenge, the Carnival, Talent Show, Art Show, vendors and food vendors, and added a great local wine, beer and spirits tasting room, added regional Scooter Competition, a kickball tournament and live music options on the Main Stage, ending with a great concert by Billboard Country Artist James Otto.
With last year’s successful event in mind, we are hard at work to build on last year’s successes to make the 2016 Harvest Days festivities even more memorable for all the members of your businesses and your families. The theme for the 2016 Harvest Days is “Hometown Celebration,” and we are looking forward to finding all the ways we can celebrate Battle Ground.
Members of your Chamber’s Board of Directors, other interested chamber members, along with key Battle Ground city staff and other interested citizens have been meeting regularly since early February to begin laying out the major elements and begin nailing down the details of this year’s Harvest Days.
In addition to last year’s great elements, we are planning a family stage on the west end of the community center, that will feature family friendly acts during Harvest Days Saturday afternoon and a family friendly movie Saturday night. We are looking at new sponsorships and a variety of new activities and ways to get involved in 2016’s Harvest Days on July 14th, 15th & 16th.
The Battle Ground Chamber of Commerce would like to announce the Call for Entries for our annual Harvest Days Festival Poster Competition.
