Open-air artist showcase | Historic brick streets of Olde Towne Clinton | Live Music
Firstly, a brief recap of the events of June 13:
Everyone was super duper geared up for the festival as originally planned in mid-June. Food vendors were all set, and the bands had arrived and began to loiter around Jefferson Street.
Then a really bad thing happened.
and then everyone was sad ..
Happily it has been scheduled for Saturday August 29
Now that we're up to date, what can you expect from the Firefly Festival?
The Firefly Festival is an Olde Towne Market, much like Spring Into Green Market and Make Mine Vintage Market. It is brought to us by Main Street Clinton. As a kid-friendly event with a broad appeal, this is a great opportunity to have a fantastic time without stepping foot outside of Clinton.
Though it was unfortunate the original date was rained out, the new schedule coincides with welcome week; So the Mississippi College community can join in the festivities. The heavy emphasis on music sets this event apart from typical Olde Towne Markets.
On a personal note, I am looking forward to spending some quality time with my family at the festival. For me, it's very much needed at this time of year. In addition, my friend J.B. Lawrence, photographer extraordinaire, will be there to capture the artist performances in soul-burning detail. It's always a blast getting to shoot events with J.B. You'll see us running around with our cameras all night I'm sure.
