Harvest Fun Day at the Clark County Historical Museum

Harvest Fun Day at the Clark County Historical Museum

Join CCHM for the 5th annual FREE Harvest Fun Day 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 27. Register now to compete in the pie-eating and corn-shucking contests.

The free family program features pie-eating and corn-shucking contests, the Fort Vancouver Antique Farm Equipment Association exhibition, craft demonstrations, scarecrow making and live music, blacksmithing, spinning, quilting, wood carving and pumpkin decorating. Chickens, rabbits and sheep will be on exhibit. The pie-eating contests, for adults and children, start at 11:30 a.m.

Also, pick up a map and vote for your favorite scarecrow in the annual Extreme Scarecrow Makeover competition, which runs through Oct. 19.
Contact the museum for more information on the Extreme Scarecrow Makeover competition.

When entered in the free Harvest Fun Day Pie-Eating Contest at the Clark County Historical Museum (CCHM), apply these winning tips:

Maximize your pie intake. Don’t eat before the contest
Minimize pie-plate table slide. Grip the edge of the pie tin with your teeth and flip the pie onto the table top for more “eating traction”.
Eat to win. Move your head up and down and side to side as you take bites. This method will smear pie on your face. But the more pie on your face, the less you have to actually ingest.

CCHM is located in Vancouver’s 1909 Carnegie Library, 1511 Main St., Vancouver.
Regular museum hours are: Tuesday through Saturday 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The museum also is open evenings the first Thursday of the month from 5 to 9 p.m. for First Thursday Museum After Hours.
A wheelchair accessible entrance to the museum is located on the east side of the museum building accessed from 16th street.
Call CCHM, (360) 993-5679, or visit the Web site, at http://www.cchmusem.org/, for more information.
