Sponsored by the Reedville Fishermen’s Museum, Bethany United Methodist Church, Fairfields Volunteer Fire Departmment and the Greater Reedville Association, the event features house decorations, craft fairs, a 5K run/walk, parade and even fireworks, according to coordinator Danny Haynie.

Kicking the day off is the Firecracker 5K. This flat course begins at Festival Halle and will run up Main Street and finish by winding through the beautiful back streets of town.

Profits support the Reedville Independence Day Fireworks Celebration.

Children’s events start at 10 a.m. The kid-friendly fun includes old-fashioned games, a build-a-boat activity, pie-eating contest, and a homemade ice-cream demo. Tattoos, face painting and fire-truck hose-down add to the excitement.

The Artist’s Arena Craft Fair features vendors, a bake sale and good eats. Music by Russ can be heard from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The annual parade down Main Street will commence at 3 p.m. Debbie Newsome is the grand marshal. To enter the parade, call Danny Haynie at 4453-3127 or 580-0831.
