Spring months stacked with fun family events
March and April are shaping up to be busy months in Tunica, according to Main Street and Chamber of Commerce leaders.
Tunica Main Street’s Lynn Ryals said activities kick off with Purple Martin Day at 11:30 a.m. on Friday, March 15, when attendees will gather near the north end of Rivergate Park to welcome back Tunica’s favorite bird. There will be a drawing for a prize and a specially decorated cake at Jeffcoat’s Deli, Ryals said.
Tunica is designated as the Purple Martin Capital of Mississippi. Scout birds were spotted in town last week, and several new bird houses have been installed downtown.
A second event in March is garnering even more notice, Ryals reports. March 23’s bike trail ribbon-cutting and 13-mile ride has been featured in area media and is drawing bicycle aficionados from the entire region.
