Gov. Jay Nixon and First Lady Georganne Nixon invite Missouri families to visit the Governor's Mansion this Saturday (Oct. 20) for the annual Harvest Fest. The annual fall event at the Mansion will include animals, crafts, and live music designed to celebrate the beauty of outdoor Missouri.
Held in conjunction with the Jefferson City's Downtown Association's fall festival, Harvest Fest at the Governor's Mansion, 100 Madison St., will be from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
"Autumn in Missouri is a beautiful time of year and the Governor and I look forward to welcoming Missourians to Harvest Fest this weekend to celebrate the season," Mrs. Nixon said. "It's the perfect time to get outdoors and enjoy all that Missouri has to offer. We invite everyone to join us this weekend for the annual Harvest Fest."
This year's Harvest Fest will feature activities for all ages to enjoy including live music, pumpkin painting, naturalist presentations, books from Scholastic, kettle corn and a cider press. The first floor of the Governor's Mansion also will be open for guided tours.
