HARVEST MOON CELEBRATION, HISTORIC 25TH STREET, OGDEN, Saturday, Sept. 23, Noon
Given my own Ogden roots, it's frustrating that I don't take the time to go up and rage on Historic 25th Street. Other than the occasional family brunch at Rooster's or Karen's Cafe, or even rarer stop at Brewski's or the Kokomo, I just don't get there as often as i should. Events like the 12th annual Harvest Moon Celebration are just the types of things that get me thinking it's time for a trip north from SLC, though. The day-long throwdown has fun for all ages--not to mention access to all the cool restaurants, bars and shops along 25th. There's your typical family fare for the kids, along with live music all day long--this year headlined by multi-talented Ethan Tucker at 7 p.m.--along with somewhat odd attractions like an arm-wrestling contest. That's the kind of thing that would have fit in nicely during the old Ogden street festival when I was in high school. With the Frontrunner running right to the west end of 25th, there's no good excuse for missing out on this one.
