What better way to show off your family’s competitive spirit than a mud volleyball game? The ultimate in slippery summer fun is one of the main events at the annual Vanlue Festival, two days of amusement that will kick-off at 6:30 pm Friday, July 27 with a grand parade. The comically messy volleyball game played in the mud starts bright and early Saturday, July 28 at 9 am. For those who’ve worked up an appetite, the Vanlue Fire Department and Vanlue Christ Methodist Church will again host the Firemen’s BBQ chicken dinner on Saturday from 4:30 to 6:30 pm. There will be music, rides, games, karaoke, face painting and corn hole tournaments for those who want to have fun without creating a lot of extra laundry. Teams must register for mud volleyball by July 27.
All proceeds benefit the village park. July 27-28. Vanlue Community Park. 419-957-5955. facebook.com/vanluefest
