This past Saturday, the town of Outlook held their very first Harvest Festival and saw a great turnout. The Outlook Chamber of Commerce organized the event to promote local businesses and bring the community together. 

We asked Hannah Taylor, from the Outlook Chamber of Commerce, how attendance was for the festival's first year. 

"Really good," Taylor said. "we must have gone through about 600-700 lunch meals, so quite a few (people)."

The town closed off three blocks for the festival and had a variety of events that were fun for the whole family.

"We had a bale maze and train rides," Taylor said. "we had carnival games, then we had a Ball Hockey tournament. We made a life-sized board game, then we had business booths to promote themselves and entertainment throughout the day."

Things wrapped things up with a dance in the Outdoor rink with local DJ Tanner Barton.

Taylor said they've heard nothing but positive feedback from the festival so far.

"I would like to thank everybody that helped put the day together," Taylor said."all the businesses that came out all the individuals that helped to do setup, take-down, to help runs booths, and to all the people that came out to enjoy the day."
