Area residents and visitors turn out for sunny 2023 Harvest Days Celebration in Battle Ground

The 2023 Harvest Days Celebration took place in Battle Ground this weekend (July 14-15), featuring events including the Harvest Days Cruise, Harvest Days Parade, Pancake Breakfast and Vendor Fair.

Members of the Battle Ground Festivals Association, including members of the community and area business owners, assist with the annual Harvest Days Celebration and other community activities throughout the year. 

This year’s Harvest Days Parade was cut short when an unidentified 17-year-old female fell off one of the vehicles participating in Saturday’s parade. The city of Battle Ground reported  “the 17-year-old female patient was conscious and speaking on scene and was transported to an area hospital with serious injuries.’’  Her identity is not being released. 

Although the end of the parade was canceled, the rest of Harvest Days continued. The day was full of vendors, carnival rides, BBQ, a Tae Kwon Do demonstration, dance performances by The Studio Dance Company, and a talent show to cap it all off. 

Audience members for the talent show were able to purchase “stars” for their favorite talent performers for a “People’s Choice” award. The proceeds from that, which totaled over $130, was to be donated to Royal Ridges following the fire that burned down part of their horse barns and put one of their horses in the hospital.
