OGDEN -- With so many options at the 10th Annual Harvest Moon Celebration on Saturday, what was a child to do?
"You can get your face painted, do crafts, and a lot of other stuff," said Destiny Reddish, 11, of Washington Terrace.
For an event that took up only a small portion of Historic 25th Street when it started 10 years ago, the Harvest Moon Celebration has definitely grown. With about three blocks of 25th Street closed for this year's event, organizers expected 15,000 people to participate in the fun.
That fun was not just for kids, as Destiny's mother, Terri McBride, confirmed.
"We've come the last three years and we love it," said McBride, 47.
Close to 60 organizations and businesses provided activities and food along the street, while live bands played on two different stages.
Passengers rode the train on a circular track in the intersection of 25th Street and Lincoln Avenue. Elsewhere, kids climbed the rock wall or got free spray-on tattoos.
"We love these events where we get to be part of the community," said Kurt Cordon, a tattoo artist for the day from Outlaw Riders, a party-planning business.
With an armful of balloon animals and a bag full of art projects, Charty Davis, of West Haven, watched her three kids get soaked in the bubble house set up on the street.
"I promised my kids we'd come for the bubble bath," Davis said. "They've been looking forward to this for weeks."
She even brought towels so her 7-year-old daughter, Conley, and sons Jack, 5, and Colton, 3, could dry off after their time in the bubbles.
"Mom, look at my arms," Jack told his mom as he imitated a bodybuilder flexing his muscles which were really bubbles.
More than 80 volunteers chipped in to help as the Historic 25th Street Business Association gave a big thank you to Ogden and Weber County.
"The community supports 25th Street all year long, so it's nice to do something for the community for free," said Heidi Harwood, the association's special event coordinator.
Harwood said that the celebration has become so big that each year there seems like there is more for the organizers to do. Because of that, she said, they begin planning the next Harvest Moon Celebration the day after the last one finished.
"We're very proud of the celebration," Harwood said. "There is just such unbelievable entertainment and food which cause a great experience."
