Country Festival Presented by Infiniti Stuart at the Equine Rescue and Adoption Foundation
By: Equine Rescue and Adoption Foundation
This is the third year for the family friendly event that truly has something for everyone. Admission is a $3 donation and children six and under are free. All the funds raised support the care, feeding and health needs of our herd of rescued horses.
Halloween is just around the corner so the kids are encouraged to dress up and trick or treat with our vendors. Please bring a bag to collect candy in.
ERAF is located at 6400 SW Martin Highway in Palm City. The event area has doubled in size and now encompasses 17 acres at 6400 SW Martin Highway in Stuart. Wear your jeans and closed toed shoes and you'll enjoy strolling around the property and seeing the sights.
ERAF is home to approximately 50 rescued horses including yearlings, mares, geldings and mini-horses!
A country festival wouldn't be complete without pony rides. Be sure to sign up for a ride offered by Choyce Party Ponies and Happy Place Party Ponies. Pony rides are five dollars. There will also be a haystack filled with trinkets – think needle in a haystack.
Get creative with the mini-pumpkins will be available for sale and decorating ($2). There will also be tickets for sale for awesome raffle baskets. You'll also be able to meet our horses that are ready for adoption. We have some beauties, so if you've been thinking about getting a horse, this is a great opportunity. There will be horse demonstrations in the main arena where our trainers will put our well-trained horses through their paces.
You can play corn hole and "fish" for prizes in the duck pond or take part in a scavenger hunt organized by our junior volunteers. The Cactus Moon Dance group will entertain everyone with their dance demonstrations. Enjoy the tunes of the Samantha Russell Band while you enjoy grilled hot dogs and hamburgers served up by the Martin County Sheriff's Grill Team. Other drinks and snack products will also be for sale.
Speaking of the Martin County Sheriff's office, they will also be providing a fingerprinting service for children at no charge. Be sure to take advantage of this valuable resource.
Infiniti Stuart will have cars on display and will be glad to show you the latest models.
