    • 10:00 am Fest on the 4th Parade — This year the theme is Road Trip — so come on down with your RV, your camper, or pop a tent in a flatbed. We’d love to see some inspired floats and costumes as we make the road trip from Beach Park to Johnson Park!
    • 10:30 am Fest on the 4th Festival — Johnson Park. Once we make the trek from Beach Park, we’ll all gather at our newly renovated Johnson Park for an all-village festival! Our fest planners have quite the lineup this year with bouncy houses, kids crafts, races, and delicious food/drinks for sale. All profits will benefit the Maple Bluff Firefighters Association, which will use any funds earned to provide scholarships, special training, or needed items for our hardworking firefighters!
    • 1:00 pm Upper Bluff vs. Lower Bluff Softball Game — Join as a player in this fun tradition or spectate on the sidelines! Lower Bluff is coming off a hot victory from 2023, and Upper Bluff is out for revenge. Coaches Ed Jaeger and Dan O’Brien are prepared for this battle! All bluffers welcome to play, but you must be a bluff resident. No sandbaggers.
