romeo peach festival

Labor Day.  It signifies the end of summer for most. Kids are getting ready to go back to school.  Parents are looking forward to their kids going back to school.
Not us.  Our family usually sticks around town.  We have our annual Labor Day party with our family and friends that stay in town.  Many are loading up their cars and headed up north for the last summer hurrah.
Not us.  We stick around.  Staring at each other.  We prepare for our annual Labor Day party that we have with our friends and family who remain in town.

We are always on the look out for fun things to do that can entertain our family.

A couple of years ago we stumbled upon the Peach Festival in the Village of Romeo.  Honestly, literally stumbled upon it.  We got a little lost.  But now,  we go back every year.  It’s something my kids look forward too.  And so do we, the wallets…er…parents.  It’s become part of our Labor Day weekend, back to school blow-out, TRADITION!

The Peach Festival which is going into its 78th year, takes place Thursday September 3 through Labor day, September 7.
Check the website for the daily events and times, because there are many that take place.
Some of the highlights are lots of peach stands, a fair with rides and carnival games, arts and crafts fair, sidewalk sales, refreshment stands.
Plus, it’s in the beautiful Village of Romeo.  Which, in and of itself, is worth the visit!

Trust me.  You won’t regret the drive!  And be sure to bring home bags of delicious Michigan peaches.  Oh yeah…and the peach pie.  The yummy peach pie.

Keep in mind, there are many wonderful orchards close to Romeo.  Blakes Big Apple Orchard is one that I highly recommend.
