GREENVILLE- Say hello to fall with Main Street Greenville during the Phyllis Mong Day of Harvest on Saturday, Oct. 2, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Free activities will be available throughout downtown.
This year, the annual event is being dedicated to Phyllis Mong. Mong, who passed away in 2020, was a dedicated supporter of downtown Greenville and an annual volunteer at the Day of Harvest Event. Many might remember her giving out pumpkins in front of the courthouse while wearing a pumpkin suit.
Attendees will be able to take advantage of the many fall-themed deals offered by the local businesses downtown. Those who spend at least $30 downtown will earn a free pumpkin from the pumpkin patch. In addition to the return of the pumpkin patch, those in attendance will be able to browse the Farmers’ Market. This will be one of the last times for people to catch their favorite vendors before next year. While shopping the crafts and foods of the market, attendees can also stop by the courthouse for a fall-themed photo opportunity.
The fun does not stop at the courthouse. Attendees can find activities like cornhole and pumpkin ring toss at YOLO Park. West Third Street will be closed for a bounce house for the kids. On the other end of Broadway, Happily Ever Co. will be sponsoring face painting and pumpkin decorating at Rotary Park.
Tickets for the Annual Chocolate Walk First Friday event will also go on sale during this event. Stop by Beanz Buttercream Bakery or Happily Ever Co. to purchase tickets while they last. Tickets will be $20 each and all sales are cash only.
