Reese Yocovett checks out the alpacas brought by Mary Bell of Windy Hill Farm at the Columbus Farm Festival Saturday. A crisp, sunny fall day brought out a crowd to enjoy the llamas, sheep and ponies; Foothills Humane Society also brought several dogs. The festival also featured an antique tractor show, carriage tours of Columbus, Overmountain Men and Civil War reenactors, fresh produce and other local products at an extended version of the Columbus Farmer’s Market. Demonstrations by local artisans, a pony parade, live entertainment by local musicians, dancers and storytellers and a wide range of food and drink were among the other attractions of the day.
