The 55th annual Marshall County Blueberry Festival, held in beautiful Centennial Park has expanded this year to a 5-day festival with opening ceremonies on Thursday, September 2nd at 5 p.m. This year’s theme is “Faith, Family and Farming.”
Families and friends have been gathering in Centennial Park since 1967 for great food, entertainment and shopping. While COVID-19 prevented the festival from happening last year, the committee decided to expand the festival this year to allow people to have more time and be able to spread out and enjoy their favorite foods and shop for all types of items.
There are some favorites returning this year and some new things. B&C Fury Laser Tag will be back again this year with infrared-sensitive targets worn by players and integrated within the gaming area. The festival is also offering two nursing stations with diaper changing area, inside Jefferson Elementary School and in the grassy area north of Nixon Field. The hot air balloons will be back and the Hoosier Old Wheels Car Show but this year a new day, on Saturday beginning at 8 a.m. and of course the fantastic fireworks.
A couple of new things are the Wheels of Agriculture Game Show Don’t miss this fast paced, exciting TV style game show where contestants of all ages can play, laugh, and learn. Also coming to the Marshall County Blueberry Festival is a Pickleball Tournament on September 4th and 5th. For details and or to register visit www.pickleballtournaments.com/tournamentinfor.pl.
