4th Annual Burr Oak Heritage Festival
July 23, 2012 by WLKM
The fourth annual Burr Oak Heritage Festival is set to kick off Friday.
The three-day event in St. Joseph County’s smallest incorporated community has a number of entertaining events, including a vintage baseball game between the Burr Oak Bandits and Sturgis Biscuits Friday night, a parade Saturday morning, fireworks Saturday night, and a community church service and picnic Sunday.
Patty Seeba, a member of the Burr Oak Heritage Festival Committee, said the lineup of events this year is the most comprehensive in the short life of the village’s community celebration.
Other events include port-a-potty races, a soap-box derby, a pizza-eating contest a display of old-fashioned farm machinery and plenty of live music.
