Cranberry Harvest Festival

The berries are harvested once a year in the early fall, usually between mid-September and early November). The farmers flood the bogs with water, and since cranberries contain little air-filled pockets, they float. Farmers use booms to corral the berries, which are then lifted out of the bog and into a truck so they can be taken to a processing plant.
