ELLEN BARBOUR along with several other dancers showcased Middle Eastern belly dance style during the Sunday afternoon en-tertainment lineup at Harvest Fest. The dancers didn’t confine themselves to the stage and brought the act down to the audience, collecting money for the Hood River ARC along the way. Harvest Fest has always featured live local music — The Matthews Family Band started the morning off with a Gospel-inspired music set fol-lowed by one-man band Ted Horiwitz — and an upbeat set of oldies from The Sugar Daddies. The sunny day brought out lots of music listeners, dancers — especially kids — and there was an out-side river-view seating area that added to the ambiance.
