The Bellamy-Ferriday House located on 9 Main Street North in the quaint town of Bethlehem is hosting Under a Harvest Moon on October 22 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Festival goers will enjoy a fall themed afternoon of fun for the whole family.
Event activities include a pumpkin painting contest, live music by Allen and Ian Johnson, aa bounce house, temporary tattoos and goodies, children’s activities and a raffle.
A highlight of Under the Harvest Moon takes place at 2:30 p.m. when a Birds of Prey program takes place. Blue Moon Raptors bring rehabilitated injured and orphaned birds Aviana, Onyx, Cedar and Myles (red-tailed Hawk, Broad Wing Hawk, Eastern Screech Owl and Barred Owl) to Bellamy-Ferriday. Along with rehabilitation, Blue Moon Raptors share the important role they have in our ecosystem to help maintain the balance of nature with educational programs. The Birds of Prey program is sponsored by The Bethlehem Land Trust.
Admission is $5 per person, children 4 and under are free. Raffle tickets are $2 each. Costumes are encouraged for our costume contest, but not required.
