Pentwater Highlights

autumn events logoFall Colors in Pentwater
Early to Mid October


Pentwater's  peak time for color is usually early to mid October.  Colors are starting to change fast across Michigan.  Pentwater has colors starting to show, with isolated bright color mixed in with mostly green.  This will be peaking within the next two weeks.   Farther inland will be peaking within the next week.  Plan your fall color tour in Pentwater soon! 

The Pentwater Chamber suggests another 7 to 10 days will be a great time to enjoy the colorful sights.  Follow us on twitter or like us on Facebook for updates and pictures.
