Romeo Peach Festival

Backstory: The annual peach festival is a perfectly adorable celebration of the fuzzy fruit and has been since 1931. There are lots of family friend activities like a night parade, a carnival midway, and … bed races? Anyway, things get a little more rowdy come dark, when plastic cups of Bud Light drastically outnumber the people in attendance. Why it’s great: Peach Festival is a staple in the community and it doesn’t try to be hip — if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Additionally, there are tons of peach-infused confections including donuts and pie. The local Dairy Queen even serves peach pie blizzards in honor of the festival. Get your hands on some of those before you head to the beer tent, which we all know is the real reason you’re here.

Aug. 31-Sept. 4; 269 E. Washington St.; Romeo; michiganpeachfest.com; 586-752-6633; Admission is free, and ride wristbands at $25.
