The 16th Annual Threefoot Festival is happening downtown next weekend. On April 6th beginning at 10 a.m., this event, which showcases local artists, will take place on the city hall lawn. Sponsored by the Meridian Council of the Arts, it's a way for these local artists to show off their works and give back to the community. Several local musicians will be performing all throughout the day, including local hip-hop dancers from Elegance Ballroom Dance Studio.
"Meridian is so fortunate to have such a wonderful art community. To see all the community come together and collaborate this event-- it's just a good weekend to come out and enjoy your family and be able to purchase the art. It's just a good, collaborative effort through the Meridian Council of the Arts,” said Community Development Director Laura Carmichael. The first Earth's Bounty of the year will also take place that day before the festival, beginning at 8 a.m. and ending at 2 p.m.
