In the evening we listened to bands play, ate delicious food, checked out the jack-o'lanterns on display (we unfortunately missed out on the pumpkin carving during the day) and, of course, camped out.
On the Sunday we woke to a beautiful morning. The morning air was still a little chilly as we made our way to breakfast but within a few hours the sun was blazing down on us again. The Saturday had been incredibly hot (around 38c I believe) and Sunday had the same weather in store for us. Even though these sorts of temperatures are common back home in Australia we've become completely unaccustomed to the heat living in the Bay Area. In fact, I've never liked hot weather so the heat was the only downside of the festival for me. That and the fact that I completely forgot that Ava is a little allergic to hay. Next year I'll make sure to pack her antihistamines, eye drops and lots of tissues. And maybe a slightly bigger tent. Five people crammed into a three person tent was a little squishy!
The Sunday was filled with various workshops. We didn't take part in any of the workshops however Ava was super keen to join in the Kids' Day Camp. As Lola was too young to join in as well we decided to give it a miss this year. We'll definitely be heading back next year though and will make sure to sign both of our big girls up for the day camp on the Sunday.
We had such a fantastic time at the Hoes Down Harvest Festival. We can't wait for next year!
