The Sweet Tea Festival will be held on the Fulton Town Square this Thursday through Saturday. All proceeds of the event will benefit the Itawamba County after-school program, A Way Out. Included in festivities will be a carnival featuring several rides for both children and adults as well as several community booths featuring everything from good Itawamba County country cooking to Itawamba County pottery. On Saturday there will be a Sweet Tea Competition featuring the best brewers in the county. Live music will be featured during the festival including Mississippi gospel and popular music. On Saturday the drumline, Partlow’s Drummers will perform. Also included in the 3-day festival will be a 5k run and walk as well as a car and bike show. For a good old fashioned Mississippi festival, be sure to visit Fulton during July 3-5 for the Sweet Tea Festival and help support a worthwhile organization.
