Treat your whole family to a good old-fashioned 4th of July

Independence Day Celebration
July 4, 2013
Visit the Ozark Folk Center Craft Village for some old-time fun on Thursday, July 4.

Starting 2:30 we'll have old time games for the whole family including -
A cracker whistling contest
Sack race
Egg carry and more
 
There will be Free watermelon at 3:30 and then the famous -
 
Watermelon Seed Spitting Contest starting at 3:45. This year we hope to beat the 2012 record of 29-feet, 4-inches. Can you hit the 30-foot mark?
 
Though out the day artisans will be demonstrating and selling their crafts and old-time string band music will be played on the stage in the center of the park. Join the musicians to dance a jig or a waltz.
