Pumpkins to roll in downtown Montague

(From the White Lake Area Chamber of Commerce)

Montague, Michigan - When the “ready-set-go” volunteers holler “ready-set-go,” veteran pumpkin rollers get ready to unleash a pack of rolling pumpkins down the Dowling Street Hill in downtown Montague, Michigan.  This quiet West Michigan town comes to life on the second Saturday of October when hundreds of residents and visitors wait in line to roll a small orange gourd down this mid-town hill.

For years, the Montague residents have told stories of late night ‘rollings’ when youngsters raced to outwit authorities by sending pumpkins off the back of pick-up trucks. Now, the ROLL is sanctioned and ribbons and buttons are awarded to the winners of each heat!!
