Boerne's Harvest Moon Festival is a jubilant, old-world day of fun and celebration with a different twist on the origin of Halloween or "Samhain." Over 2,000 years ago in the region now known as Ireland, the Celts celebrated "Samhain," or the "End Of Summer and Harvest," by uniting together with food and drink, building bonfires, playing music, donning costumes, and predicting each others fortunes, as prophecies were an important source of comfort and direction for the long, dark winter ahead.
