Over the weekend Corrales hosted its annual Harvest Festival to celebrate the fall season.

The Corrales Harvest Festival is a two-day event that takes place each year throughout the village of Corrales during the last weekend in September. It is hosted by the Kiwanis Club, a non-profit dedicated to helping communities.

Peanut (owned by Arlene Ann) was elected as Pet Mayor at the Harvest Festival.

Its mission is to promote and develop the history and character of the Village of Corrales through a yearly educational and recreational event that showcases the local agriculture, merchants, artwork, performing arts and historic culture.

This year people partook in hay rides, live music & dancing, a cake walk, games, and much more. The Growers Market gave folks an opportunity to buy fruit and vegetables, including roasted chile peppers.

Families also had the chance to pick a pumpkin in the local patch.

There was also a Corrales Pet Parade, which allowed people to elect a Pet Mayor. This year the dog Peanut won.

“Peanut would like to thank everyone for their support and congratulations to all the candidates who all also earned worthy titles. We have Pet officials in many categories now,” his owner, Arlene Ann, said.

Corrales Fire Department offered free bike helmets at its station as well.

According to the Corrales website, the Festival began in 1985 with hayrides during the fall harvest. Over the years, other farms, businesses and restaurants began to participate, enlarging the festival from 800 to over 10,000 visitors.
