Cleveland holds second Heritage Day festival

Staff report
CLEVELAND ó Kids scrambled for candy and adults enjoyed entertainment at the second Cleveland Heritage Day on Saturday.
Held at the town’s park, the event attracted hundreds of adults and children, as well as more than 20 vendors selling things such as homemade sweet potato butter, fried Oreos, roasted chicken and homemade ice cream.
Children’s activities included pumpkin painting, face painting, pony rides and hay rides.
One activity that children were particularly thrilled about was the “candy scramble.” More than $150 worth of candy was hidden in a pile of hay, and children were able to jump in and find the sweet treats.
The amphitheater held live music and karaoke fun, and a tractor pull went on all day in a large field. Trophies were given to winners.
It was a very family-oriented event, and for the most part, the weather cooperated.
The town plans to host the event again next year.
