MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) - On a night that featured two festivals and beer delivery from the world-famous Budweiser Clydesdales, downtown Meridian was busy to say the least.

Friday night kicked off with the Clydesdales making their way through downtown and dropping off cases of Budweiser to local restaurants in a continuation of the celebration of the 75th anniversary of Mitchell Distributing.

“The small cities honestly seem to give us a warmer welcome,” Clydesdale wrangler, Lauren Lambeth, said. “So, that’s always really special to us. We love getting to see everyone’s smiling faces and it’s always really exciting to bring the horses to new places where we have never been; it’s really fun for us.”

Day 7 of the Jimmie Rodgers Festival kicked off and so did the very first day of the Threefoot Festival.

The Jimmie Rodgers Festival featured Frank Foster, Tristan Tritt, and Crawford and Power on the City Hall Lawn.

Over at The MAX, musical act, Marcella and Her Lovers, helped to get the Threefoot Festival started.
