Fall means a few things: leaves change color, sweaters become the preferred clothing – and pumpkins are everywhere. Your family will find plenty of that big orange fruit and fall fun at the Romulus Pumpkin Festival, happening Sept. 21-23, 2018 at the Romulus Historical Park.

This September festival officially opens at 6 p.m. Friday with live music. That night at 8 p.m. is the Parade of Lights, which will begin at Romulus City Hall. Check out all of the cool lights and see who wins first place in each division.

Saturday the festivities start at 8 a.m. with the pancake breakfast with Boy Scout Troop No. 872 until noon. From 11 a.m.-4 p.m., the Crusin’ 2018 Car Show will make its way down Goddard Road, so go see all of the great cars there.

The true fall fun starts at 11 a.m. when the Kids Inflatable Zne opens. Here, you will find a variety of family fun events and activities including pumpkin painting and Punkin’ Chuckin.
