In some of the deep south’s best small towns even the street names proclaim the area’s ties to agricultural culture and the power of the natural world.
Pine Street is one of the best of these, located in Downtown Wiggins and surrounded by the towering Longleaf pines from which it borrows its name.
These stately pines served not only to help build both the economic and literal foundations of the small town of Wiggins MS and all of the surrounding areas, but they also inspired one of the oldest festivals in the entire state of Mississippi.
Now, many decades later, you have the opportunity to participate in what has become an important local tradition, the Pine Hill Festival.
Beginning Friday, March 17 and running through Saturday, March 18, crowds will gather up and down historic Pine Hill and throughout Blaylock Park and the surrounding areas.
You’ll enjoy the best of the festival favorites; great food, fantastic music, children’s activities, arts and crafts and the knowledge that you’re a part of something vital and significant to the Stone County area, a rite of passage for locals and travelers alike.
With the best activities, vendors, food and music, the 2017 Pine Hill Festival is the perfect opportunity to get out and enjoy this gorgeous spring weather with your family and friends. Come out early Saturday for the annual 5K, 10K and Kid’s Fun Run at 8AM. Mutt Strutt supports the local SPCA.
The Pine Hill Festival is the perfect opportunity to get to know the folks of Stone County and the surrounding areas, to sell your creations or to provide fun experiences for adults and children alike!
