FLUSHING, MI In Genesee County, this weekend, will be a long-time event that features activities for the entire family.

On Saturday, Sept. 25 along Main Street in downtown Flushing, the Flushed Harvest Fest, which has been a staple in the community for more than 25 years, is held from 9:30 p.m. to 4 h.

Susan Little, the Flushing Area Chamber of Commerce's executive director, told MLive-The Flint Journal that "This is a family fun event to help people come down have fun and enjoy the new autumn season."

The festival, which is run by the Flushing chamber, will include vendors, entertainment, crafters, a beard contest, and highlight small businesses and dozens of activities such as obscene diaper derby, apple pie baking contests, or chili cook-off.

Little said this year that a new addition is resurrected by wine tasting from Main Street Treasures.

Pon rides, inflatables, pumpkin painting, arts and crafts, and chalk art are among the activities for children.

Homemade scarecrows will be hidden on Main Street, which will have a selection of homemade scarvecros created by community members and businesses. The top three scarecrows will be given prizes.

The executive director stated that the event has gathered 1,000 to 3,000 attendees in recent years.
