PALMER — Pyrah’s Pioneer Peak Farm is hosting its fall harvest festival this Saturday and again on September 26, with an assortment of events and activities for the whole family.

Pyrah’s is known for its U-pick vegetables, but many people came for the tractor rides, music, games, and to watch model rocket launches, hosted by the Alaska Northstars Rocketry Club.
