The Village of Boyd-nicknamed “The Friendly Town”- is nestled among the farms and woodlots in the gently rolling hills along State Highway 29, east of Chippewa Falls. The many local businesses meet the needs of area residents and visitors. The community also features Lotz Park, with a lighted ball diamond, volleyball and tennis courts, pavilions and play areas. Historic St. Joseph’s Church, built in 1928, has spectacular German stained glass windows. Its prominent twin steeples have become a landmark. Boyd’s 680 residents invite everyone to the community’s Ringelspiel Days Festival, Memorial Day weekend, with sports tournaments, a carnival, parade, and live music. Late August, the village hosts an event, with an outdoor dance and free sweet corn. In early December, Boyd hosts a pancake breakfast with Santa and Mrs. Claus, horse-drawn wagon rides and skating.
