The 5th annual Gateway to the Delta Festival is officially in the books. It was a great day as our community and people from all around came together on the Charleston court square to enjoy all the event had to offer. The day kicked off with our very first Color my Delta 5k, and participants had a blast running through the streets of beautiful Charleston while being splashed with color. Live music began at 11:15 am and continued throughout the day, ending with headliner, The Band of Heathens at 8:30. We strive to have a musical lineup every year that appeals to a wide variety of tastes, and we feel that was accomplished.
There were other activities throughout the day as well, including a car show, photography contest display, and silent auction. As always, our many vendors offered a diverse selection of Mississippi-made crafts and more. There were plenty of food choices, too, with vendors offering a great variety of delicious southern-style food. Of course, we couldn’t forget about the kids! Our Kids’ Zone consisted of various activities for children, including inflatables, games, and a petting zoo.
Each year, we strive to make the Gateway to the Delta Festival an event that is enjoyable to people of all ages and backgrounds. We thank you all for supporting us and coming out this year. If you could not be with us, we hope to see you next year! Date to be determined.
