I wish there was some way to make the carnival rides less expensive. Over a $1 a ticket (when most rides cost two or more tickets) or $25/wristband on Sunday (when a full theme park like Michigan's Adventure only costs $28) seems steep. Especially when you have more than one child.

The rides are probably expensive to keep the little hoodlums away. I make sure that if I go down there that I leave before dusk - the downtown seems to get overrun with thugs or wannabe thugs.

Those little hoodlums are your neighbors kids, your grand children, niece or nephew. Downtown Plymouth during Fall Fest is probably safer by far then you own back yard.

Hoodlums and thugs in downtown Plymouth? Are you sure we're talking about the same fall festival?!?

First time back in about 10 years. Things sure have changed. I remember this being a community based, family gathering type festival. Now it's all commercial, not really that much to see.... Could not find an info. booth, or for that matter, anyone who knew anything at all about the schedule or events. And I had to pay to park.... Guess it's true after all, you can't go back home. Don't see myself coming back anytime soon. What a shame.

Frank - The paid parking was to benefit various service organizations. I paid to park Friday at the Plymouth-Canton Community Schools admin building, with proceeds benefiting local athletics. On Saturday, I parallel-parked just down the road for free. The schedule for the weekend was posted above, and also at plymouthfallfestival.com.
