Fourth Annual SUMMERFEST -- FUN ON 61

Summerfest will feature live Delta Blues by The Guitar Charlie Blues Band, Eddie Kusic, Boogaloo Aimes, The John Horton Band and Vickey Baker. The Guitar Charlie Blues Band is known throughout the delta and the Jackson, Miss. area for their hard driving brand of Albert King inspired electric blues.

an original Delta Bluesman. Another living legend, jazz/blues
keyboardist Boogaloo Aimes will be accompanied by Eden Brent. Last but
not least will be Paula recording artist Vickey Baker. Miss Baker is a
long time Vicksburg resident and graduate of The University of
Mississippi. Her CD, "Don't Gimme No Lip" is a mixture of Blues and Soul
that has audiences all over the Mid-South screaming for more!
Gospel music will be provided by the Mount Horeb Baptist Youth Choir and the Mount Olive Baptist Youth Choir. Also performing will be the Simmons High School Marching Band.
You can't have a Festival without food! Summerfest will have a huge Bar-B-Que Cooking Contest with partcipants from all over the delta. First prize in the BBQ contest will be $500.00.
Before you settle in to listen to the music with a plate of BBQ, you'll have to check out all of the family fun & games at Summerfest. There will be a Dixie Youth Baseball Tournament with area teams competeing for trophies in two age classifications. There will also be a Free Throw Shooting Contest for the guys and gals.
Don't forget to check out the Arts & Crafts Area at Summerfest. Local artists and craftsmen will be there showing and selling their handy work.
