Human & beast found things to nibble at Waterford Harvest festival Feastival
There is something for *everyone* to nibble on at Waterford Harvest Festival! A week long extravaganza concluded with the Feastival- a huge array of food stalls, craft stands, & more all along the quays in Waterford City. Here are some photos to give you  a taster (sorry) of what was on offer. Mark your calendar for next year!
Waterford Harvest Fest 2012, some local producers

There is always lots on for the kids; farm animals, ride on tractors, bouncy castles & such, & of course lots of yummy cakes & buns to make sure they've enough energy for everything ;-)
Kids love the Harvest Fest! (heh heh!)
The Waterford Blaas
There were bands, re-enactments, shelter from rainshowers, & fun as well as great grub. I find that Waterford always puts on a great festival, from the massive Tall Ships festival right on down to some smaller ones. The Waterford Harvest Festival is a whole week of food and fun  that should definitely be on your list. The Feastival itself was also a great day for the whole family. Foodies could eat wild harvested mushrooms, kiddies could play under them in this popular garden. See you in the enchanted food forest next year! 

Note: We went to Feastival (part of the Harvest Festival) under our own steam. Sure it is free, anyhow :-D Well, not the food, but there is no entrance fee! But I do want to make it clear that this year (2012) I was a guest of the festival 2 other days as part of a blogger's tour. That was fantastic, because I got to experience & tweet about even more of a festival I'd loved in 2011. Thank you, Waterford!
