Festive harvesting

       Young and old enjoyed rummaging through the pumpkin field at Rock Ledge Ranch Historic Site during the annual Harvest Festival Oct. 3. The activity was one of many in an old-time vein, with close to 4,000 attending under sunny skies. Less friendly weather is predicted for the First Nations event Oct. 10; if so, activities will move into the barn, ranch manager Andy Morris said.
