The event will start with a celebratory Mass at Holy Cross Church – (the parish itself is observing its 150th year anniversary on Nov. 1) – on Friday, Sept. 18, in the evening, at a time to be announced, followed by a Gala dinner featuring international food stations in the Holy Cross School building’s banquet hall.
On Saturday, Sept. 19, and Sunday, Sept. 20, the Fest continues with a large street fair that will include antique, craft and retail vendors, an entertainment stage, children’s rides and other activities, including a Saturday afternoon multicultural parade and Saturday evening family movie night.
The town has contracted with New Memory Productions, New Memory Management and Brystra Corp. to co-produce the event with the Harrison Fest Committee, in partnership with the mayor and Town Council.
