If you have never checked out Wanderoos for the Fourth of July, you have been missing out. Some may ask, “Wander WHO?” But locals know the unincorporated community of Wanderoos well known for its softball field, has been offering up loads of family Independence Day fun for over five decades.

55 years ago, a committee of Wanderoos residents decided to start a family day in their little town to celebrate July 4th. As people recall, the first parade was pretty small. Three floats and some area children dressed up for the occasion.
