If spring means roasting a hog and crawfish for ya, head to the Salt & Smoke Festival in Natchez! It’s an overnight whole-hog BBQ and crawfish boil with all your favorite southern sides, boiled peanuts.. and a s’mores buffet.

If you’re a runner looking for a cause, head to Racin’ for the Seed 2017 at Lakeshore Park in Ridgeland. Proceeds benefit the Mustard Seed, a Christian community for adults with developmental disabilities. Founded in 1981to meet the spiritual, physical, emotional, and intellectual needs of adults with special needs.

To get a head start on that Easter Egg Hunt, bring the family to Latimer Lakes Park in Horn Lake for the Annual Easter Egg Hunt. There’s over 30,000 eggs, so bring a huge basket. Magic Mr. Nick will perform, there’s free pictures with the Easter Bunny, and arts and crafts.
