On Saturday, September 29, 2018 ELGA Credit Union had the honor of participating in the annual Flushing Harvest Fest. As someone who grew up in Flushing, this is a tradition that the residents look forward to all year long. With a scarecrow contest, pie eating contest, beard contest, face-painting, games and much more, Harvest Fest really has something for everyone in the family!

Fun Fall Festivities

Hosted by the Flushing Chamber of Commerce, this fall extravaganza showcases all things fall in Michigan. It represents the kickoff of the fall season for the city of Flushing in a fun filled way! Harvest Fest is located right in the heart of downtown Flushing and closes down Main Street for the entire day. As you drive into town, the friendly faces of scare crows greet you from the lamp posts. The scare crows are made by the local businesses to encourage a little friendly competition.   You see, not only is this a fun day for the residents of Flushing, it also gives all the local merchants a chance to shine and gain support from the entire community.

Photos and Prizes

ELGA Credit Union’s fall themed booth was loaded with fun games, Halloween coloring pages, candy, and awesome sunglasses. There was even a selfie station!  Our pumpkin ring toss game gave everyone a chance to win a fun prize and was a hit with all ages! Even with all the different activities going on around us, we were still able to wow the crowd by offering a professional quality picture taken by one of our talented employees at the selfie station. We were then able to email or text their picture to them for a fun souvenir.

Overall, we had a great turn-out from both the community and our employees. ELGA is so honored the Flushing Chamber of Commerce invited us to set up a booth and interact with members in our community.  Harvest Fest turned out amazing and is an event that we can’t wait to participate in for years to come. We hope to see you there next year!
