Kudzu Festival a week away; fun-filled event June 1-3
The 18th annual Kudzu Festival will be held June 1-3 at Thomas Arena in Holly Springs.
There will be free parking, a new and better carnival, two nights of rodeo (Friday and Saturday) and a gospel concert.
The Thursday night gospel concert promises to be an entertaining event. Headliner group will be the Stone County Connection from Jackson, Tenn. This group has been the Tennessee Bluegrass Champion group for two years.
The concert takes place Thursday night starting at 6 p.m. and will also include other exciting, local groups.
Tickets will be $6 at the gate and will include all the night’s events. Church buses will be offered a discount to $5 per ticket (per person) for all buses with 10 or more passengers.
This year’s carnival is a family-oriented company, dedicated to having a well-managed, family environment for everybody.
The J Bar B Rodeo will have the usual great rodeo clowns and lots of local cowboy talent.
At 5:30 p.m. Saturday (before the rodeo), the Tri-County Obedience K-9 Drill Team will perform a series of exercises and maneuvers that will open everyone’s eyes to the capabilities their own canines may be hiding. At 6 p.m., the Marshall County Sheriff’s Department Search and Rescue Unit will appear to show attendees how and what the canine search dogs can do.
