Harvest Festival's final day at Fairgrounds

Music, crafts, entertainment highlight this year's art and craft show

The Pleasanton Harvest Festival closes today at the Alameda County Fairgrounds.

Visitors can shop, eat, be entertained and win prizes, sponsors of the original art and craft show said.

"We are still the best craft show around featuring American, handmade arts and crafts in hundreds of booths," the sponsors added. "There's something for everyone so bring the kids to experience a make it and take it craft area while you enjoy all day stage entertainment featuring the Fargo Brothers rock a billy band and some serious fiddling by Tom Rigney."

Jeff Davison is the featured Demonstration Artist for the Pleasanton show; his company name "Wood Turning Obsession "defines Jeff and his love of working with wood. Jeff is a graduate of Huntington Beach High School and is self taught in this fine art. He began making frames and other wood objects for friends and family and his obsession just grew from there. Now Jeff appears in fairs, festivals and art shows with his beautiful bowls and vases made of various woods.

Show visitors also can win an Original Painting by American folk artist Bonny Rochester. A drawing will be held following the Pomona Harvest Festival.

The entrance fees are $9 for adults; $7 for seniors (62+); $4 for 13-17; and 12 and under are free.
