4th-july_01A Patriotic Community

Each 4th of July hundreds join in this patriotic celebration at Fairfield Bay. The days activities kick off with a traditional town parade, 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 the Bay’s residents have served in the military and it shows with flags flying all over this beautiful community. Quite a site to see.Then comes the big fireworks display. This day long celebration is a must summertime experience for anyone longing for a time when things were less busy.
