Ypsilanti Heritage Festival

When we moved to the area four years ago, my brother told me "Don't forget to go the the Ypsilanti Heritage Festival." I thought, "Great a small town festival, in Ypsilanti of all places - How fun can THAT be?" But we attended the festival anyway, with our then 1 1/2 year old son. It was actually pretty enjoyable.

The re-enactors were very helpful, we learned a little about the area that we hadn't known and we enjoyed our new neighbors as we had fun eating festival food and soaking up the atmosphere. In the past several years i think the festival has even gotten bigger and better. last year when we attended the Buffalo Soldiers even had free rides on their horses (I use the term free but they were looking for donations, which we happily gave).

The festival runs August 21-23, with a parade at 10:00 am on August 22. The festival includes living history, plenty of children's activities, crafts, food and so much more. So come and enjoy the festivities, it's fun for the entire family!!!
