Upcoming Events

Harvest Day, Walk & Roll to School Day set for Oct. 8 and 12

  The Frankenmuth Parks and Recreation Department is organizing a pair of upcoming fall events.

  Harvest Days will be celebrated on Saturday, October 8, in Heritage Park and the Harvey Kern Community Pavilion, from 1-4pm. This free community day will include inflatables, hay rides, games, caramel apples, popcorn, drinks and more.

  This event is much like the one held at the end of July for the Frankenmuth Antique Fire Muster.

  On Wednesday, October 12, the Parks and Rec will recognize National Walk & Roll to School Day where the community is invited to participate with school children across the United States in this event. Parents and children are urged to plan a walking route from their homes to their schools, even if they live far out of town, where they are encouraged to use a remote drop-off site.

  “Pick a location in town and drop off your children to walk to school from there. This helps alleviate traffic congestion at the schools and provides them exercise to kick-start their day,” Parks and Recreation Programmer Janelle Compton said.

  The Frankenmuth Police will also be out and about in town to help monitor this event.

 The Walk & Roll to School Day is roll as in wheelchairs, making this day totally inclusive, including bicyclists.

  School is back in session and this is a good reminder to area motorists to be mindful of children walking, rolling and biking to school and slow down, look twice and be aware of the youth in our community,” Compton pointed out.
