Delta Harvest Festival 2016

The Second Annual Delta Harvest Festival was held on Saturday, October 1, 2016. The following are some photos from the portions of the event organized by The Delta Mill Society. Special thanks to Katherine Killins and Cathy Livingston for the mammoth job of getting this all organized. It was a great day - enjoyed by all who attended (the photos speak for themselves).
