The City of Romulus and the Romulus Downtown Development Authority (DDA) announced the return of the Pumpkin Festival. The annual community event will take place in downtown Romulus from Friday, September 17 to Sunday, September 19.
“After canceling last year’s event to protect the safety and well-being of residents during the pandemic, we’re pleased to host the Pumpkin Festival again this year,” said Romulus Mayor LeRoy Burcroff. “Our annual traditions are part of what makes our city a community, and we look forward to celebrating in person with Romulus families, businesses and visitors once again at this year’s Pumpkin Festival.”

“Romulus residents expressed how much they missed the Pumpkin Festival last year—we missed it too,” said Romulus DDA Director Merrie Druyor. “The City of Romulus is committed to creating a fun, memorable and safe experience for all community families, and the scheduled events during the Pumpkin Festival were organized to do just that.”

New this year is Romulus Come Unity Day, a fun, reimagined third day of the Pumpkin Festival organized by Unity Ambassadors Building Bridges—a newly-formed nonprofit in Romulus whose members include residents committed to creating unity in the City—with support from the Romulus Ministerial Alliance. Taking place from 1-6 p.m. on Sunday, September 19, Come Unity Day is designed to bring together residents from all four city quadrants for a day of community events and activities after being kept apart for much of the pandemic. In addition to the agenda above, residents can enjoy scavenger hunts, card games, live music and dancing, a bounce house, local vendors and more. If you are interested in volunteering or participating in Romulus Got Talent, call 734-992-7179.
“The Detroit Metro Airport sits right in the center of Romulus, dividing the city into four quadrants,” said Councilwoman Tina Talley. “When I’m out in the community, I often hear residents talk about feeling disconnected from their neighbors across the city. Romulus Come Unity Day will serve as a great opportunity for our all of us to gather and reflect on the importance of unity. Unity begins with you, and we want that message to resonate among our residents.”

For more information about the return of the annual Pumpkin Festival, please call the Romulus DDA at 734-942-7545, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. or view the full schedule here. Residents are also encouraged to visit the Romulus DDA Facebook page or the City of Romulus Facebook page.

Applefest 2021 in Huron Township canceled due to downtown road construction project

Posted by The Huron Hub – July 20, 2021

It’s been a rough go for Huron Township Applefest the last few years.

After having to cancel the 2020 festival due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it looks like 2021 will also be a dud.

The cause: road construction.

According to the official Applefest website, the 2021 festival will be canceled due to an upcoming road construction project that will repair portions of road in downtown New Boston.

The decision to cancel the festival was unanimously decided on by the Applefest committee.

“Dear Applefest Patrons, It is with deep regret that Applefest 2021 must be cancelled,” a message on the Applefest website states.

“A long awaited road improvement project in the downtown area is expected to begin before October. This would make it impossible to go through with the Applefest this year. Refunds are in process for those who have already submitted their applications.”

In the years prior to the pandemic, the festival was impacted by the Waltz Road bridge that was closed at the time. The bridge closure caused a headache for festival goers, and also caused the cancellation of the popular Applefest parade.

It looks like we will have our sights set now on 2022, with hopes that it will be a better year for Applefest.

A message on the official Applefest website explains the reason for the cancellation of the 2021 festival.
