Pearly Kings and Queens Harvest Festival is something you should look forward when you are in UK during the autumn season. Festival season is a time for fun and joy with everyone you love. When such festival is combined with tradition, the joy increases two folds. Pearly Kings and Queens Harvest Festival is conducted to celebrate the huge bounty out from the autumn harvest. Celebrations begin in front of Guildhall Yard in London.
The sweet story behind the celebration of Pearly Kings and Queens Harvest Festival started with the street boy sweeper named Henry Croft of Somers Town. He attracted many people and gained a lot of funding by wearing the pearly button knitted garments to get attention. He used the fund to help the poor people in his town and in memory of his generosity, the Pearly Kings and Queens Harvest Festival came to be celebrated every year during the autumn season.
