Marion Mayhaw Festival
Time: Fri. night, Sat. all day call for info

Friday night kicks off the festival with a street dance in the parking lot of Marion State Bank. Bring lawn chairs and dancing shoes to in on the fun!  If you are not one for dancing, don't worry, there is plenty of food available provided by early vendors.  Saturday's festivities begin with a parade.  Four wheelers, horses, floats, and golf carts are all welcome.  Bring the kids early to catch all the action with fire trucks, police cars, the Barak Shriners in their mini cars, and local businesses tossing candy from floats.  Throughout the day on Saturday, the crowd is entertained by various singers, dancers, cloggers, choirs, and other talent.  Activities for all ages are happening all day! A turkey calling contest, horseshoe tournament, mayhaw spitting contest, egg toss, mayhaw jelly cooking contest, a treasure hunt, and a talent show are just a handful of the activities you can participate in.  You do not want to miss the lawnmower races where high performance lawn mowers are pitted against each other for top prizes and, of course, bragging rights!  There will be tons of arts and crafts booths for you to browse.  We've got everything from woodworks to jewelry to candles to hand-painted items and much more.  Find the perfect Mother's Day gift.  Don't forget to stop by our many food venders' booths as well.  Bar-B-Que, fried fish, chicken on a stick, sno-cones, and funnel cake to name a few dishes.  Eat lunch at the festival and take some home for supper!

 No matter what you are interested in, you won't be disappointed if you come by the Mayhaw Festival.  Come early, bring your family and friends, and make a day of it! You will be so glad you did!
