CVB hosts leg of blues music celebration
The Tunica Convention and Visitors Bureau on Wednesday hosted an evening of music as part of a week-long celebration of the Blues that spanned the Mississippi Delta and two other states.
For its part of the “Bridging the Blues” music event, Tunica hosted a performance by Clarksdale’s own James “Super Chikan” Johnson on the platform of the recently-completed Tunica Visitors Center.
“The purpose was to create a series of blues-related events for a nearly two-week period so any visitor in the Delta region is guaranteed to have the opportunity to hear live blues somewhere in the Delta on each day throughout this period,” said Webster Franklin, president of the Tunica Convention and Visitors Bureau.
Local events abound through December
From now through the end of the year Tunica is packed with fun things to do, starting with this Saturday, when the Henderson Rec Center hosts a Community Fall Festival from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and pro wrestling returns, this time in the Rec gymnasium, starting at 7 p.m.
Next week is just as busy. On Thursday, Oct. 18, the Tunica Convention & Visitors Bureau and the Tunica County Chamber of Commerce are hosting an invitation-only celebration of 20 years of gaming and tourism at Bluesville in Horseshoe Casino. The bi-annual Scout Base, organized by the Chickasaw Council, Boy Scouts of America, begins at the Tunica Arena, with thousands of Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts, Explorers, Scout families and visitors expected for Friday and Saturday events, demonstrations and activities.
