It's that time of the year; spring has arrived, gardeners are prepping, daffodils are blooming, and our festival is just two and a half short weeks away. This year, we are featuring favorite events and entertainment; like: the 5k Run and the Fun Run; the Pet Parade; entertainment on three stages; an assortment of Villages; and, of course, plenty of artisans! Also, the Taste of Starkville will provide all the tempting treats we all look forward to sampling. So don a festival tee, slap a hat on your head, and grab a poster; if you don't already have those items, don't fret! All that merchandise will be available at the festival. See you there!
