NORTH RIDGEVILLE, Ohio (WJW) – Nothing stinks about this — Northeast Ohio’s SkunkFest is returning to North Ridgeville this month.

Hosted by the Skunk Haven Shelter, skunk owners and skunk lovers alike will be coming together in South Central Park from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 9.

Like in years past, there will be plenty of activities celebrating our striped friends, including skunk costume contests, games and vendors selling themed merchandise. You can also expect raffles and a DJ.

Check out photos from previous years below:

You’re welcome to join the festivities even if you don’t have a skunk, but remember — look, don’t touch.

And don’t worry, skunks kept as pets are domesticated and de-scented.
