The Harvest Days Festival has been a staple of Midvale for over 80 years, and much of what makes the festival so exciting and fun for residents comes from local volunteers giving their time and talents to take Harvest Days from being good to being great. One city councilmember stated that this year's Harvest Days Festival was, “By far, the best.”

As such, this past month Midvale City officials decided to give a much deserved thank you to these volunteers during their city council meeting. Each one of the volunteers present got the opportunity to come up to each of the city councilmembers and the mayor, shake their hand, and receive a personal thank you. They also received several gifts to show the city’s gratitude in regards to their volunteering, including a Midvale City mug and other memorabilia. 

This year's Harvest Days Festival included mini golf, sumo wrestling, carnival games, bounce houses and many other activities.

The Midvale Harvest Days volunteers mentioned that this year ran much smoother than previous years, including setting up activities and local shop owners in an organized and polished manner. They also stated that they were able to include more activities than previous years, and that they hope next year will be even better. λ
