Flood Fest 2019 Info



We are just a few days away from Floodfest 2109, and here is the updated information.


Per Col. Tom Parker:

The afternoon session will run from 1 until 4 p.m.

There is no admission charge for this part of the activities. Numerous vendors are signed up for this portion of the event. Many offer services that flood victims may find very useful. Others run the gamut of food-related items and much more. Additionally, we will have classic cars and tractors along with fire
equipment, law enforcement vehicles, 18 wheelers, military vehicles and more for young people to get up close and touch.

The evening portion begins at 5:30 p.m.

The City of Vicksburg has allowed us to use the city’s bus to shuttle people from the off-site parking area at Merit Health River Region (2100 US Highway 61). If necessary we will also utilize Sherman Avenue Elementary School (2145 Sherman Ave.) for off-site parking. The shuttle service will be available beginning at 4:30 p.m.

Please bring your lawn chairs! Absolutely no coolers will be allowed. This is a safety issue, and also, we need to support the vendors. We will make every attempt to accommodate our handicapped guests. We will be using the parking lot at the school for this purpose.

We will have non-stop entertainment with auctions and music. We have made arrangements to accept credit cards for your auction purchases.

Appearing on the Cook Tractor Company Stage will be-Scott Randall Rhodes and the Mississippi River Band, Shayne Weems, Brother Bert Bryant, Flyin’ Solo with Ken Hudson, The McAllister Brothers, Four Washington, Ben Dew, The Hitmenz, along with A Special Appearance from Sheriff Martin Pace. Our featured performer and co-host are Vicksburg’s own William Micheal Morgan, presented by Cook Tractor Company. Mayor George Flaggs Jr. will be on hand to make a special presentation to Morgan.

Anyone with questions can contact me at 601-501-6819 or 601-218-1524. All proceeds will be distributed by the Long Term Recovery Committee of the United Way of West Central Mississippi. Admission is only $5.
