Good Old Days Festival in Richmond

This annual family fun fest in downtown Richmond in Macomb County, running Sept 8-11, 2011, features a midway, classic car show and more!

The city of Richmond hosts its 48th annual Good Old Days Festival from Thursday until Sunday, Sept. 8-11, 2011. The free event has something for everyone – from live music to games and an antique car show!
