The festival included the fourth annual classic car show, a large pot of booya — a soup/stew mixture — crafts and vendors and more.

Casey Aro and Larry Koski provided music inside the center.

A steady flow of about 400 people checked out the classic cars parked next to the center throughout the day. The festival ran out of booya by 2 p.m.

The next Booya Harvest Fest is Sept. 14, 2019.
