 Two Festivals in Tunica October 16th!

Festivals will fill the air soon on October 16th in Tunica and will be a guarantee for fun and food with Delta Day in Downtown Tunica and Romp on the River at the Tunica RiverPark.

The Romp on the River, located next to the Fitz Casino, starts at 9:00 am with dozens of artisans and crafters along the Mississippi River and dozens more eco-friendly exhibits and delicious food vendors.  Geocaching, a type of scavenger hunt, Watershed Harmony, a puppet show, aquariums inside and outside, and cruises of the Mississippi River, on the Tunica Queen, will be offered all day, too.  One of the main highlights of the festival will be the Fitz Music Circle, featuring 13 acts ranging from Memphis in May style bands to cloggers and salsa dancers.

“The Tunica RiverPark is a pristine setting for our large eco-friendly festival with the $26 million museum overlooking the banks of the Mississippi River complete with cruises on the river throughout the day on the Tunica Queen riverboat,” Natalie Wilson, the event organizer, said.  “This is an all ages event with entertainment, excitement, activities, and arts.” 

Ten miles south of the Tunica RiverPark on Main Street, the Delta Day Festival will get into full swing at 9:00 am featuring live entertainment at the amphitheatre stage in Rivergate Park, Mississippi Delta food, children’s activities, arts and crafts vendors, a 5K run, and much more for the family.  One of the most popular attractions is the antique car show.

“The annual antique car show brings beautiful classic autos from all over the country to Downtown Tunica,” Lynn Ryals, the executive director of Tunica Main Street said.  “The cars are on display throughout the festival, with prizes awarded to the best of each category throughout the day.
