Nearly 1,200 community members attended Harford Fest Saturday, a daylong celebration of Harford Community College's 60th anniversary.
The day started with the Heather L. Hurd 5K Spooktacular, which raised funds for Remembrance Book Scholarships for Harford Community College students and brought awareness to the dangers of distracted driving to children and adults alike.
Following the race, there was an open house showcase of Harford Community College's academic programs and student services in the APG Federal Credit Union Arena. Upon arrival, guests received a "passport" and were encouraged to have it stamped and turned in to be eligible for various prizes.
Faculty and staff from all credit and continuing education programs were on hand to share interactive presentations and to discuss opportunities for prospective students.
Other activities included a children's area with bounce houses, hayrides, kite flying and a games area, plus a children's reading area. In addition, there was an outdoor stage with a variety of musical performances plus demonstrations by the 4-H Dog Club on an agility course.
