JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — Tourism officials are reminding Mississippians of the abundance of local festivals and fairs to enjoy across the state.

Malcolm White, director of Visit Mississippi, says in a news release that communities throughout the state host festivals and fairs that showcase the authentic sights and sounds of the state's culture.

Among them are the 65th Annual Choctaw Indian Fair in Philadelphia from July 9-12 that features tribal art and dance and the World Championship Stickball.

The 27th Annual Slugburger Festival in Corinth from July 10-12 features a slugburger-eating contest, carnival rides, a variety of food vendors and musical performances.

The 26th Annual Sunflower River Blues & Gospel Festival in Clarksdale from Aug. 8-10 began in 1988 and is one of the largest blues and gospel festivals in Mississippi.
