Thank you Cranston for coming out in full force this past week!! Whole foods market garden city in Cranston, Rhode Island was the site of a huge Harvest Fest block party and it sure brought in the crowds. It was an event fit for the whole family. Children had the opportunity to get their faces painted for free and there was also a balloon artist (Ken Pepper Stott) doing free balloon art for the Cranston natives. There was also an opportunity to purchase a mini pumpkin and decorate/paint it for free.
The smell of grilled hot dogs was in the air as they had a grill set up outside and grilling some amazing specialty hot dogs.
