If the autumn blues have you down, why not bring the entire family out to the Dunbar Village Harvest Festival? The annual street festival is happening this weekend on Saturday, September 28th from 11am-3pm. With games, live entertainment, workshops, art projects, and even a pancake breakfast, there’s sure to be something everyone in the entire family can enjoy.
