Fireworks will be flying high this Friday, the 4th of July, and so will pole-vaulters at the 5th Annual River Vault competition in La Crosse, Wisconsin.
Joining in the patriotic celebration will be All-American Maggie Steele, storybook heroine of the inspiring novel, Maggie Vaults Over the Moon.
The event will be held from 11 am until 6 pm at Riverside Park on the bank of the Mississippi River.
“Maggie has been all over the country and the world, but she’s never been to Wisconsin, which is a hotbed for pole-vaulting up north,” said author Grant Overstake. “Riverside Park is one of the most beautiful places in the world to pole-vault. And, it being July 4th, it will be an unforgettable experience!”
