Hennepin’s annual Harvest Home Festival brought people to town for a parade, face and pumpkin painting, and food at the United Methodist Church. There was also a Scarecrow contest that took place throughout the week before the event.

Scarecrows, including first-place winner — a mechanic by Mike Bouxsein, could be found throughout Hennepin leading up to the annual Harvest Home celebration. In the scarecrow contest, Hennepin Park District and The Country Stop came in second and third behind Bouxsein for businesses, with the Bassi Family Tribute, Dane Colby, and Dorris Miller winning for residential scarecrows.

Float winners were Bradley Wink and the Putnam County 4-H, Bouxsein Farms and the Putnam County High School band and Panteras. Relay for Life had the best golf cart float, PC Trail Riders were awarded Judges Choice, and best candy giveaway was the Hennepin Park District.

The Putnam County Band and Panteras float took both third place overall float and Best in Show.
