The Swan Valley Historical Museum held their annual Harvest Festival on Sunday, August 29, 2021. People waited patiently to sample the fresh bread, hot out of the clay ovens. This is always one of the tastiest attractions at the event.

Live demonstrations brought historical equipment to life and provided a glimpse into the past. It is amazing to see how much times have changed.
