Michigan Peach Festival in Romeo
Bring family and friends to enjoy this sweet summer Labor Day festival, taking place Aug. 30-Sept. 3, 2012 throughout the city's downtown area
Looking for a delicious summer wrap-up? Head out to the Michigan Peach Festival in downtown Romeo this Labor Day weekend, Aug. 30-Sept. 3, 2012, for plenty of family activities, parades, rides – and everything peachy.
The fest, which kicks off Thursday and runs until Monday, is packed with pies (deep-fried peach, anyone?), car shows, a 5K/10K run and live music. But that's not all. Running all Saturday morning is KidFest – chockfull of fun just for folks 14 and under!
This kids-only party at Romeo Village Park has more crafts, games and racing fun than ever. First, get creative at home and dress up your favorite stuffed animal or deck-out your bikes and trikes to enter into the decorating contests; the cuter or kookier, the better (and don't forget to pack your pads and helmet if you want to race your ride to the finish line afterwards!)
Afterwards, try your hand at the balloon toss, pie-eating contest or potato-sack race, laugh along with Rosco the Clown and visit a few furry friends at the petting zoo. Dan Dan the Choo-Choo Man will even be calling all kiddos aboard for rides on the coolest kid-sized train in town.
And on Sunday, take the whole family to the fly-in and farmers' breakfast to see the Yankee Air Museum's vintage WWII bomber soar in overhead at the Romeo State Airport – then enjoy craft sales, bake sales and parades all day long. Book sales, chicken and pasta dinners and the children's Fairy Tales and Nursery Rhymes Parade are only a few more events lined up at this family fest that you just can't miss.
Shuttle services are available Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. to take you around the festival's sites. The events and festivities take place 2-10 p.m. Thursday, 10 a.m.-11 p.m. Friday, 7:30 a.m.-11 p.m. Saturday, 7 a.m.-11 p.m. Sunday and 8 a.m.-midnight Monday.
