Thank you to all the volunteers that came out to work booths, the hospitality suite and assist the board on making sure the festival ran smoothly. We could not have pulled it off without you donating your time.
Without a great team, nothing is ever accomplished. The 2014 Board of Directors was a great group to work with, and they all worked very hard.  A great big thank you from the bottom of my heart to you all!  Thank you cannot express the amount of appreciation I feel for each and every one of you!
Last but certainly not least, I would like to thank the Vicksburg community and our visitors that came out to support the festival. This event is planned for you to enjoy and we are so pleased that we had good participation this year. We hope to see you next April for another great time in downtown Vicksburg!
