KUNA, Idaho — Locals came together to host a small Harvest Festival on Ten Mile Rd, Saturday.
"We just wanted people to come out and do kinda a normal thing that feels good, and we got a beautiful day to do it. We will be back next year, we'll have to just evaluate. So far we've had good traffic."
They offered horseback rides, a petting zoo, homemade snacks, and of course, pumpkin picking, among other activities.
"I think we made fifty pies or more and batches of chili. We have twenty seven gallons of chili and we made it all from scratch and all local ingredients."
Organizers Gina Safford and Erin Chandler expressed that they hoped the event would bring a sense of community, or even new experiences in the face of the pandemic.
"Bringing any community together, big or small, is important especially with Covid-19 and everything being cancelled. We thought kids, you know, kids have suffered a lot with school being closed and the comradery, so having kids come out and enjoy and see farm life. Not everybody gets to touch or ride or see where a chicken lays an egg."
