A 30A Night Under the Harvest Moon

The seventh annual Harvest Moon Festival is right around the corner on September 30 and is set to take place at Bud and Alley’s with additional events all day long. Traditionally, the festival aligns with the Harvest Moon, which historically has been regarded as the full moon that marks the beginning of autumn. During this time, farmers would take advantage of the extra light to gather their harvests. Much like the farmers of yore, the Harvest Festival serves as a moment to honor the hard-earned fruits of labor after the busy spring and summer seasons.
