Fourth of July celebrations in Fairfield Bay

Fairfield Bay will observe “A City of Patriotism” and holiday celebrations on Fourth of July weekend. Festivities kick off Friday, July 3, with a traditional town parade at 9 a.m. at the Mall, showcasing floats from Fairfield Bay and neighboring towns. The 4th of July Parade says a lot about the Bay, with its strong sense of community and deeply felt national pride. A majority of Bay residents have served in the military and it shows with flags flying all over the community.

That evening, there will be a fireworks display over Greers Ferry Lake at the Fairfield Bay Marina. On Saturday, July 4, there is a full day of fun, games and entertainment beginning at 7 a.m. with the Red, White and Blue Golf Tournament at Indian Hills Golf Resort. Call 884-7637 to register. The Fairfield Bay Baptist Church Bazaar is 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., with inflatable games for the kids, door prizes, live music, food and more. The fun continues from 2 to 8 p.m. at the inaugural Miniature Golf Tournament at the professional Harris Cup certified mini golf course in Woodland Mead Park. At 8 p.m., the fun continues with “Lucky Draw” playing in the Amphitheater in the back of the park.
