Harvesting cute thoughts

The Fall Harvest Festival & Chamber Expo is almost upon us - which means that there will be lots of window displays and storefront scarecrows. I love the decorating that goes on at this time of the year in Renton, and things are just beginning to heat up on that score.

Above, is just one of the festive windows at Happy Delusions on S. Third St. in the DTR, a home to artisans and craftsmen and a place for you to buy original goodies. I love Mary Clymer, owner of HD's, verve and holiday spirit - so why did I only nominate her window for the cutest of the moment? Because she may have some good competition springing up this week - so stay tuned and The Picaroon will bring you more cute windows as the week progresses.

Speaking of cute - what are you going to wear for Halloween this year? Junebug here, already has her outfit picked out. She is going as a Strawberry Marshmallow. Makes her highly squeezable and keeps her warm. Junie couldn't wait till the end of the month to wear her new favorite outfit, so if you are lucky, you will be able to see it yourself sometime soon.

Don't forget to put the Trick or Treat & "Olde Fashion Halloween Party in the Main Street Square (entrance at the 200 block of Main) on your calendar. Saturday, October 31st from 1 til 4pm. It is right behind the top block of South Third and free and family oriented and tons of fun.

The Fall Harvest Festival & Chamber Expo takes place this Saturday at the Piazza & Spirit of WA Events Center from 10 am till 4pm and is also free, family fun. The scarecrow contests that runs all week long in preparation for this event is enough to bring you downtown.
