A wet, windy North Branch Fall Harvest Festival

North Branch resident Ed Hudella won the 5K again this year with time of 17:30. Lynn Will was the top female finisher with a time of 21:46. This young runner kept a keen eye on her competition. The Landsharks team felt right at home when it started to rain during the Scarecrow 5K. They were the winners of the group costume contest. 
Grant and Rowan Lillehei were the individual costume contest winners.

It truly felt like fall — the not so pleasant part of fall — during the North Branch Fall Harvest festival Saturday. The wind blew, the rain fell and the clouds didn’t let in a ray of sunshine the whole day. Despite those lackluster conditions, some hearty residents stopped by the celebration.
