The official opening of the State Games is heralded by the Coca-Cola Opening Ceremonies June 20 in downtown Meridian. Thousands will gather at City Hall for the parade of athletes, the lighting of the State Games torch and a spectacular fireworks display. The State Games keeps its entry fees low primarily through the generous donations of sponsors, including Founding Gold Sponsors: Meridian Coca-Cola Bottling Company and Rush Hospital; and Gold Sponsors: AT&T, Maples Gas, BlueCross BlueShield of Mississippi, Meridian-Lauderdale County Tourism Bureau/Lauderdale County Board of Supervisors, Structural Steel, WTOK-TV, The Meridian Star and WMDN/WGBC-TV.
