RAYMOND — The small agricultural community of Raymond was the place to be Saturday afternoon, as festivities for its annual Raymond Harvest Festival brought out hundreds of families to celebrate "134 years of hometown pride."

The day began with a 5K race, while a carnival, kiddie parade, street dance and more filled the day with plenty of fun for everyone to enjoy together in one of the last hoorahs of summer.
