Whether it’s to satisfy your craving for some delicious pumpkin pie or to test your skills in a pumpkin rolling contest, the Romulus Pumpkin Festival is sure to please. The 18th annual street festival will be held Sept. 18-20, 2015 at Romulus Historical Park.
Established in 1996, the festival is held the third Friday in September and always begins with a night parade on Goddard Road where thousands of guests line up to watch the lit-up bikes and vehicles pass by.
The Romulus Pumpkin Festival will have a little something for everyone, including food, games, live music and activities for all ages. You’ll find a pumpkin rolling contest, pie-eating contest and even a pumpkin-seed-spitting contest.
Families can also have fun voting for the cutest tot in the Cutest Baby Contest. Classic car enthusiasts should be sure to stop by the fest from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. on Saturday for the 14th annual car show. Admission to “Cruisin’ 2015″ costs $10, with all proceeds benefiting local organizations.
There’s also a craft show daily, and a tractor show from 9 a.m.-6 p.m. Sunday.
