The Micanopy Fall Harvest Festival was held on October 26th and 27th in Micanopy, Fla. Micanopy is located 12 miles south of Gainesville and prides itself of being a small town with strong roots. The 39th annual festival filled Downtown Micanopy with over 200 vendors from across the southeast. Crafters, entertainers, and spectators packed Cholokka Boulevard for the weekend. Proceeds from the event go towards the operating costs of the 15 nonprofit sponsors of the festival.
Shops along Cholokka Boulevard are open for business during the festival on October 26, 2013.
