HARVEST
10 a.m., Wildwood Park for the Arts. $5-$10.

Wildwood's annual autumnal festival returns this weekend with all its usual hallmarks: hayrides, crafts and activities for kids, food, music and beer. But, of course, the highlight for all events at Wildwood, at least for us grown folks, remains Wildwood itself. The leaves in the 100-acre park should be thinking about turning and, while the weather might not exactly feel fall-ish, who's not ready to escape the summer's oppressive heat and trounce around in the woods? The forecasted 80-degree temps for this weekend might not exactly be the respite we were hoping for, but we'll make do. More reasons to go: On Saturday, from noon to around 5 p.m., the Arkansas Pickin' and Fiddlin' Championship is going on, with contestants young and old battling it out on banjo, fiddle and mandolin. Following the concert, Grammy-winning progressive bluegrass outfit Mountain Heart gives a concert in Wildwood's Lucy Lockett Cabe Festival Theatre at 7 p.m. Tickets are $10 for kids 12 and under and $25 for everyone else. Sunday, the festival continues from noon until 6 p.m.
