The annual Temple Harvest Festival was held on September 23, 2012 at the town common. The weather was perfect and fair attendees sat in lawn chairs listening to the Temple Band while dining on BBQ chicken and the usual fare of hot dogs and hamburgers.
The chicken was prepared by the Volunteer Fire Department and was interrupted when they were called away to a fire in the early afternoon.
The Temple Economic Energy Committee display featured photos of a solar thermal installation which was built as a cooperative effort of neighbors and professionals.
Other community programs were well represented including a display of the town's master plan and a signup table for a driveway plowing cooperative.
Other attractions were a hay bale tossing competition, hayrides, face painting booths and a closeup view of hawks and owls from the Connolly Farm's Rehabilitation Center
