Editorial: Festival brings Havelock together

Published: Wednesday, October 24, 2012 at 02:04 PM.

The cooks, vendors, business people and festival volunteers greeted everyone with smiles. The festival featured reunions of old friends and family, and allowed neighbors to enjoy activities together.

Families had a fun time together away from all the stresses of work, school and the chores of everyday life.

And the weather could not have been any more perfect — with a cool evening for the wings on Friday night and bright, sunny skies with pleasant temperatures for chili on Saturday.

It was Chamber of Commerce type weather, appropriate considering the work of the Havelock Chili Festival Committee and the Havelock Chamber of Commerce, which organize the event. Volunteers worked many hours to make the festival a success, and they have our appreciation. We can’t wait until next year.
