Students hawk hot sauce, camel gear, cupcakes and more at Harvestfest

10/18/2012

Those in need of clever t-shirts, sweet treats or the obligatory Venus fly trap needed to look no further than the great tent on Tempel Green during Fall Weekend, Connecticut College's annual parents and family weekend.

Student clubs, teams and organizations sold everything from customary camel gear to air fresheners to homemade hot sauce to raise funds at Harvestfest, an annual bazaar and a Fall Weekend favorite.

"I love Harvestfest," Shelby Bourgault '15 said. "It showcases everyone's passions and interests and doubles as a fundraiser. I think the parents really enjoy seeing students advocate for their group or cause."

Laura Cianciolo '16 documented the unique items for sale with a creative slideshow.
