Old Jerry might have said it’s done flung a cravin’ on us.
A record number of vendors have signed on to participate in the ninth annual Jerry Clower Festival set for Saturday in downtown Yazoo City.
Organizers of this year’s festival sought to build on the parts of previous festivals that have proven to be the most popular. Since the largest response is always to the family activities, the festival invested more heavily this year in children’s activities. This year the festival will welcome a train, a mechanical bull, a 35-foot obstacle course, a large slide and inflatable items designed for smaller children to enjoy.
A record number of arts and craft vendors have also signed on, and some local merchants will be holding special promotions for all of the visitors downtown.
