Billye Jean Stroud, Community Development and Main Street director, said, “Our team enjoys preparing the annual event for our citizens and guests of our city. Tallahatchie Riverfest is an opportunity to enjoy music, art, and family fun and we ask people to come out and support the event.”

Before the sun comes up, vendors for the Main Street Marketplace and Case Knife Show will begin setting up tents and tables with art, pottery, crafts, boutique items, and, of course, collectable knives around the Union County Courthouse and at Magnolia Civic Center in preparation for a 9 am opening.

Live action will begin at BNA Bank’s downtown location at 8am when young runners hear the horn and begin their 1 mile Fun Run journey followed by an 8:30 start for participants in the 5K BNA Bank’s Tallahatchie RiverRun.

The historic downtown shopping district will host Union County Heritage Museum’s Heritage Arts and Crafts Market at the Trailhead Plaza, Pharoahs Car Club of Mississippi car show on West Bankhead Street, and inflatable park at the Tallahachie Bridge. Bands for the inflatables are $10 for all day play.

At noon, thousands of yellow rubber ducks will be launched from the Bankhead Street Bridge into the raging waters of the Tallahatchie River to float to the Walking Bridge at the Park Along the River. A joint fundraiser by the New Albany Rotary Club and the Union County Heritage Museum annually awards more than $1,000 in prize money to duck winners.
