Fairfield Bay 

Thursday, July 4th Fairfield Bay is known for its patriotism, and nothing says “God Bless the USA” quite like a good old-fashioned parade, complete with floats, music, fun, and our nation’s colors on proud display. Driving into town through our spectacular, flag lined main street will give you goosebumps, and the sights of the crowd lined parade route will make you feel like a kid again. Wave as the floats go by, and you may just be lucky enough to catch some treats thrown your way.

After the parade, take a stroll through Woodland Mead Park and cast your eyes on some real American Muscle. Our Car Show will make you red, white and blue with envy! Kid’s crafts and activities will keep the littles busy, too! Grab a putter and enjoy some mini golf. Rumor is there’s a gator named Gus on our course!

Spend the afternoon at Tom Sawyer Days learning about how the settlers lived. There will be storytelling, live music, demonstrations of pioneer crafts, and ice-cold lemonade.
