DETROIT (AP) - Detroit’s Belle Isle is launching a seasonal tradition common at other Michigan state parks: A harvest festival.

The Detroit River island park - and new state park - will hold the daylong festival Saturday featuring pumpkin painting, tractor-pulled hayrides, a costume contest and marshmallow roasting. Other highlights include a straw bale maze, “spook-tacular” music and the Detroit Institute of Arts’ interactive mobile trailer.

The event is free but the state’s Recreation Passport may be required to access the park as that program gets phased in. Recreation Passports grant access to all of Michigan’s 100-plus state parks and are available at Belle Isle’s administrative building or Secretary of State offices.
