National Tom Sawyer Days is coming up during Fourth of July Weekend in downtown Hannibal. There are so many different types of activities associated with Tom Sawyer Days. Official events like the Fence Painting Contest and Frog Jump Contest draw enthusiasts year after year, and unofficial events that coincide with Tom Sawyer Days, like Mud Volleyball and the Hannibal Cannibal, are also among the activities our community loves to support. There's always more than enough to do during the Fourth of July weekend in Hannibal. What do you enjoy most about National Tom Sawyer Days?
