Threefoot Festival ends on a high note
The annual Threefoot Festival – Arts, Eats, and Beats began Friday and finished out Saturday afternoon
MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) - People filled the streets of Downtown Meridian on Saturday. The Threefoot Festival hosted by the Meridian Council for The Arts featured food, art and music.
The annual festival began Friday morning and finished Saturday afternoon. The event was held on the city hall lawn and on the streets of downtown Meridian.
The two-day festival brought in bands like the Blues Messengers, Stars Band and the West Lauderdale Jazz Band. Food vendors were set up everywhere, serving everything from funnel cakes to lemonade in mason jars. Artists were painting, dancers were dancing, and kids were playing.
News 11 spoke to a couple of the festivalgoers.
“I’m having fun, meeting a lot of people, making a lot of shirts, pillows, all kinds of stuff that says Meridian, Mississippi on it,” said one vendor.
An artist who was painting a view of 5th street in Meridian said, “My goal is to try and paint at all the local festivals and give myself a two-and-a-half to a three-hour window in hopes to get a completed painting.”
The Threefoot Festival welcomed a good time and ended on a high note Saturday evening.
