The Tupelo Police Department and some citizens of our fine city have collaboratively implemented a Communities Forward festival to bring about cohesiveness in the community. Ward 4 Councilwoman Nettie Davis initiated the idea out of her concern for the community’s need for developing a positive image of law enforcement officers, their role and responsibilities to the citizens, and the development of a harmonious relationship between the two entities.
For the past nine years, the festival has been very successful with a capacity crowd in attendance. The event was kicked off with an awesome parade that included city organizations, fraternal organizations, businesses, churches, and the community. The event will be held at Gum Tree Park on North Front Street, on Saturday, Nov. 1, at 1 p.m. until.
The parade, which will begin at the parking lot of Carver Elementary School, at noon. is scheduled as a kickoff activity. Any business and/or organization may enter a float, car, truck, or bus. Please contact Natalia Davis at 841-6510 for more information. Other festival activities will include live entertainment, 3-on-3 basketball tournament, awareness and vendor’s booths, variety of games for children and even a BBQ-cook-off. If you wish to sponsor a vendor’s booth, please contact Othea James (662-871-1758, 662-620-4996). The fee is $40.
