The 3rd Annual Mississippi Gourd Festival was a success!  Attendance was down a bit, but the number of students was up–136 students!  We had a wonderful selection of vendors, teachers, and classes.  Jason Smith played his handcrafted gourd banjos during the festival.  A big thank you to some special volunteers:  Bettie Norwood, Fred Wood, and Taylorsville Garden Club members!  They pitched in to help Mississippi Gourd Society members.  Thank you to each person who helped to make the festival a success.  

We hope you enjoy these photos from the 2012 Mississippi Gourd Festival!
