The Cheyenne River Youth Project® is officially kicking off its 25th anniversary celebration with its first-ever Harvest Festival on Wednesday, October 9. The festival starts at 5 p.m. at the Cokata Wiconi teen center, and it’s open free to the public.
The evening’s festivities will include a “Harvest Feast” community feed, games, door prizes and plenty of fun. The feast, in particular, will be a special celebration to honor the end of the summer growing season.
“Our menu will highlight the fresh produce from our Winyan Toka Win garden, including pumpkins, squash, zucchini and corn,” said Tammy Eagle Hunter, CRYP’s executive director. “The meal will be a celebration of the 2013 growing season, of a bountiful harvest, and of 25 years of healthy living here at the Cheyenne River Youth Project.”
