Bay Fest was begun in 1991 by our current Mayor J. E. Smith as a celebration at the end of the Desert Storm conflict to recognize local citizens and other Mississippians serving in the armed forces.
What is BayFest?
BayFest is a four day festival with a wide variety of excellent musical entertainment every night, a carnival, many food and craft vendors with a large crowd in attendance every night.
On Saturday morning, there is usually a mule pull… an interesting event! Afterward, there is a continuous schedule of events for children young and old to enjoy! A few of these are a sack race, watermelon and pie eating contests, log sawing contest, tomato throw, prettiest rooster contest and many more. Monetary prizes are awarded to winners! It is a good time for all! These events have been maintained for many years, and a large crowd is on hand to either participate or cheer on participants.
