Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah Festivities on Saturday, March 22

The Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah Parade (and Sweet Potato Queen Convention) is coming the weekend of March 20-23 to Fondren.  This year, the Sweet Potato Queens are honoring Vietnam Veterans.  

Ton of things going on that weekend.  Here is the schedule of events.  A great event for families is the Sal & Mookies Street Carnival.  

The Carnival begins at 10 a.m. on Saturday, March 22 (right after the Color Me Rad 5K).  It takes place on the State Street green space behind Sal & Mookies.  There are fun games, jump zones, prizes, ice cream eating contest, dunking booths, and more activities.  Its a great time for all the family.

The ZDD Arts Market is ongoing at the same time on the Fondren Corner parking deck, in case the parents want something to do.  

The Sweet Potato Queen Parade starts at dusk that evening.  

If you go, park in the Memorial Stadium parking lot.
