Video: Mathiston Hosts 2nd Annual Mayfest

MATHISTON, Miss. (WCBI) — The weather was perfect in Webster County where hundreds of folks came out to the 2nd Annual Mayfest.

The festival was held at Mathiston Park and included musical entertainment, a car show and food.

Vendors offered everything from jewelry, arts and crafts, furniture and clothing.

Mayfest President Betty Jeffcoats says the festival is simply a great way to bring the community together.

“I think we had probably close to 75, maybe 80 vendors today. We just do it for the community. We don’t try to make any money off of anything. We just do this for the community,” says Jeffcoats.

This year the Mathiston Mayfest also celebrated the city’s 125th Anniversary.
