Labor Day is great because we are not in school yet. We get an extra long summer because our town is cool. It is the last weekend before school starts.
On Halloween there is a big Halloween festival. There is a parade and afterwords there is a play of the Sleepy Hallow Story and there is a headless horse man. There are contests for the best costume and many other things.
When the first Pilgrims came here a really long time ago there was a very bad winter and they were starving. So for the very first Thanksgiving there was only 5 corn kernels for each person but they survived. So in Saugatuck to remember that bad winter we start every Thanksgiving with 5 corn kernals just like they did.
