||Artesia Day kicks off Friday night
ARTESIA, Miss. — A hundred years ago, the little town of Artesia in Lowndes County was a destination for people from all over the South because of the soothing waters of its natural springs.
Those days are gone but the town wants people to know it’s still alive and well. This weekend it celebrates it’s annual Artesia Days.
Theresa Sanders, one of the organizers of the annual Artesia Festival, says the festival gets bigger and bigger each year.
Festival goers can expect lots of food, like barbecue and ribs.
They can also stop by the festival's new stage for music that begins 7 p.m. Friday.
Vendors will be open all day Saturday with speakers and politicians on hand. Gospel music kicks up Saturday at 3 p.m.
