Community invited to Harmony Feast

Posted: Wednesday, September 14, 2011

The community is invited to attend the Second Annual Harmony Feast on Friday, September 23 from 5 to 7:30 p.m. The celebration of the contributions people have made of all backgrounds that make our community a great place to live, to grow and to prosper will be located in a large tent near PNC Bank in Huntington Plaza Shopping Center across from Kriegbaum Field.

The Harmony Feast mini food court, celebrating Huntington County cultures, will offer food by purchase of tickets from a variety of area food vendors. Over 400 people enjoyed the celebration last year by purchasing food at the feast. Tickets will be $1 each and it will require one to three tickets to purchase one food item.

Inside the tent those in attendance will find several tables featuring food vendors from Huntington County offering American, Mexican, Italian, Cajun, Jamaican, Native American and a selection of other foods. The tickets are purchased upon entrance to the tent to select the foods. The Boys Scouts and Bailey’s Coffee will take tickets for beverages.

Tables will be available to sit and enjoy dinner while the Huntington North High School homecoming parade passes by. Boogie Down Dee-Jays will provide musical selections. The parade will be followed by the traditional homecoming football game at Kriegbaum Field.

The Harmony Feast marks the observance of Harmony Day in Huntington County and is an outreach of the Harmony Initiative, an organization of local volunteers dedicated to diversity in our county, and the Harmony Feast steering committee. Sponsors of the event include Huntington University, Our Sunday Visitor and Duke Energy. Additional sponsors include First Church of the Nazarene, Faith Community Church of God, Central Christian Church, College Park Church, Evangelical United Methodist Church, St. Peter’s First Community Church, Huntington County Chamber of Commerce, Myers Funeral Home and Pathfinder Services.
