Catch the Bus Festival this Weekend

Meridian, Miss.

There's a big fundraiser this weekend for the Boys and Girls Club of East Mississippi.

The Catch the Bus Festival is the brainchild of Meridian High School student, Madeline Griffin. She hopes to raise enough money to purchase a new bus for the club.

The event will feature lots of activities for kids including Carousel rides; there will also be plenty of food and music. Organizers hope to raise $70,000.

Saturday's event will be from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Highland Park.
