The 32nd Annual Inman Harvest Day Festival saw an estimated 20,000 people converge in Downtown Inman on Saturday, September 23, 2013. The weather was excellent for a day of fun for the entire family!
138 craft, artists, non-profits, church, and sponsor booths were on hand for this year’s festival making it the largest festival in several years. Two entertainment stages were filled throughout the day with many different acts from instrumentalists, dancing, to singing. The food court with 11 food vendors was bustling during lunch and even throughout the day.
This year’s festival saw the return of the Norfolk Southern Railroad Exhibit Car and the addition of a model train exhibit. The antique tractors and several race cars were also available to view. Children enjoyed all the amusement rides all day including the addition of the bungee-jump.
The Greater Inman Area Chamber of Commerce created and implemented the Explore Inman Passport Program during this year’s festival. Visitors were given a passport card and then given a ticket for each local business that they visited. One ticket was drawn from all tickets for a 47” Vizio HDTV. Kenny, from Spartanburg was the lucky winner. Congratulations Kenny!
The Greater Inman Area Chamber of Commerce would like to sincerely thank all the volunteers that worked so hard to make the festival a success. We would like to also thank all of our sponsors that supported the Inman Harvest Day Festival. We look forward to the 2014 Inman Harvest Day Festival!
