July starts off with a BANG with the Bremen Firemens Festival, June 29 – July 3. Hosted in Sunny Side Park, celebrate the 4th of July holiday weekend with a grand parade, Firemen’s waterball, tons of food, antique tractor pull, a carnival, and signing off with fireworks display at dusk.
Speaking of fireworks, the Culver Lake Fest held annually the third weekend in July, launches their stunning fireworks off of Lake Maxinkuckee. This festival is held by the lake in the center of Culver. Providing entertainment, a car show, tons of games such a Corn Hole and Fishing tournaments, a parade, a two mile walk or five mile road race, arts & crafts, and of course loads of food. While visiting Culver in the summer, you must visit the Original Root Beer stand for a homemade root beer float.
With all the talk about festivals, the summer would not be quite the same without the Marshall County 4H-Fair, July 10-16. Located in Argos, at the county fairgrounds with exhibits, antique tractor parade, pig scramble, entertainment, with much more. Don’t forget, the fair is full of livestock and animals to see and tasty treats to gobble up.
Held on the same day, July 23, Culver is the place to be. The Lion’s Annual Corn Roast and the Culver Firemen’s Festival have lots to do. Lions Corn Roast is legendary – with the best local sweet corn you’ve ever tasted! Burgers, soft ice cream, and cotton candy complete the evenings fare! Bring the kids and come by early to help shuck that HUGE pile of corn! Culver Firemen’s Festival has music, vendors, food, and lots of fun under the summer sun.
So if you weren’t quite sure how to spend your weekends in July, its time to mark your calendars and gear up for all these great festivals!
