While early trick-or-treat ideas abound in Detroit, nothing seems quite as Detroit-y a Halloween than the Detroit Riverfront Conservancy's HarvestFest. The first installment in what the group hopes will be an annual tradition takes place Saturday, Oct 24 at Dequindre Cut and is co-sponsored by the conservancy, the Department of Natural Resources and Eastern Market.
The event has so much of everything, it reminds us a bit the time Stefon touted supposedly family-appropriate Halloween activities on SNL. In this case, the family friendly thing is for real. HarvestFest will offer kid-friendly movies on the large LED screens, airbrush tattoos, a pumpkin patch, hay rides, and will allow kids to trick-or-treat between tents at the party.
Detroit HarvestFest is free and takes place this Saturday, Oct 24, at the Dequindre Cut from 1:00pm to 5:00pm.
