The Heritage Festival may be a bit different this year, but the celebration of the history and tradition of the Northville community remains unchanged.
The smaller festival, organized by the Northville Chamber of Commerce, will take place Sept. 17, 18 and 19 with a different location, parade route, event days/times, and several other changes.
“Please be patient as the details unfold. We look forward to bringing a little cheer and normalcy to our Northville community. We hope to bring the festival back in full strength in 2022, but let’s enjoy ourselves in 2021,” a chamber spokesperson said.
The traditional Victorian Parade will begin the Heritage Festival at 6:30 p.m. Friday. The celebration will continue with some of the most popular festival features throughout the weekend. Currently planned is the inclusion of community nonprofit booths, live and street entertainment, crafters, Painting with Paws, History Hike, Lions Kid Sight Trailer, Petting Farm, Vintage Baseball, Mill Race Village Grounds and the Annual Duck Race.
