Oct. 20 saw a Farmfest Halloween happening in Johannesburg Michigan. Farmfest was born in 1998. It is hosted by Stacy Jo Schiller who owns the farm. The mission of Farmfest is to support the performing arts while blending nature and music. Their Halloween event celebrates the change of seasons with food, music and costumes.

 The Bandura Gypsies of Cheasaning performed mid afternoon. Pictured (l-r) are Tony Fox and Shawn Elizabeth.

A group of people settle in for a hay ride in a wagon pulled by an old John Deere tractor. (THERESA --- Us the face of the woman in the center for front page art. Just blow it up. Very colorful)

The crowd grew as the day wore into night.
