- — Zoe Shannon
The harvest festival is an annual event celebrated on Terra Nova to commemorate Commander Taylor's trip through the time portal. The event consists of a play about Taylor's trip and fireworks. Colonists eat candied apples and corn. (Vs.)
Mark Reynolds regretted that he didn't ask Maddy's parents if he could take her to the festival as their first date as opposed to sneaking away during the day and becoming trapped out in the jungle at night. Zoe Shannon, Leah and Sam Marcos starred in the play for the festival as Commander Taylor, Lt. Alicia Washington and a pilgrim. (Nightfall, Vs.)
