GRAFTON, Mass. —Hide your pumpkin unless you want to see it catapulted into outer space.
The fifth annual Harvest Home Celebration, hosted by the Community Project, will be on Nov. 4 and the always popular squash launcher will be primed and ready to go.
The festival is one of the project's two main fundraisers that is also the year-end celebration of the Community Harvest Project's success.
“We also announced the total donated this season - 250,868 pounds,” said Paul Grady, the volunteer coordinator for the organization. This could be a record, last year the harvest was (comparatively) only 180,000 pounds.
The Community Harvest Project, located at the Brigham Hill Community Barn, donates all of its crops to the Worcester County Food Bank. Volunteers from local area schools, church groups, businesses, and community groups pitch in all season long.
This year, the harvest celebration will have on hand, aside from the catapult, pony and hay rides, live music, a cornucopia of seasonal food, and a Civil War encampment to name a few.
The fair will run from noon to 4 p.m. For more information call Paul Grady at 774-551-6544.
