Pumpkins Roll Down Goudreau Hill

A Family Halloween Favorite at St. Ignace


Children watch eagerly as pumpkins roll down Goudreau Street next to City Hall in St. Ignace during the Great Pumpkin Roll Sunday, October 29. Sunny skies made for the perfect fall afternoon to enjoy the pumpkin roll, which was rescheduled from Saturday, October 28, due to inclement weather. Costume contests, hot cocoa, and treats were enjoyed by all who attended. The Pumpkin Roll was preceded on Saturday evening by another popular Halloween activity, the annual Trunk or Treat program.
