Friday's beer and wine tasting from members of California Certified Organic Farmers is merely the aperitif for a weekend of free Harvest Festival events at the Ferry Building. Saturday there's apple pressing and lots of pumpkins, with cooking demos running through the afternoon. During the daytime hours both days this weekend, look for varietal honey tasting, live music, face painting, and a barnyard by the bay, with a free petting zoo for “kids of all ages.” Play nice, please.
