Harvestfest returned to the Auglaize County Fairgrounds to raise money for the Auglaize County Council on Aging. 

The Event took up space across multiple buildings for their seventh year in Wapakoneta to bring fun for the whole family. Along with a health fair, the festival featured an indoor car show and a small petting zoo hosted by the local FFA. There were also plenty of vendors selling crafts, antiques, and more as well as some live entertainment.

The event raises funds for the council to put on programs for the area seniors after losing around $150,000 from a levy seven years ago.

"We developed this to offset the costs and develop this fundraiser and it's an event that people can come out, the seniors can come out and enjoy all the stuff plus their families and so it's win-win," says Exec. Director Bob Warren. "We're making a little bit of money plus the family can have fun out here."

The council hopes to raise around $3,000 from the event.
