Video: Gum Tree Art Festival

Downtown Tupelo is once again crowded with people this weekend for the annual Gum Tree Art Festival.

There’s plenty to do for the whole family. Besides plenty of art to sample on the way down the street, there are lots of food choices, and of course the long lines to get those funnel cakes. But there are healthy choices too. Every year the Gum tree festival seems to get bigger and the artists have really turned out this year.

“It a juried art festival. So quite a bit a prize money is being given in the different art divisions and like I said that’s a ton community support. It’s a wonderful festival for the artists not only to sell but to win prize money,” says Charlotte Mullinix, Festival Coordinator.

Mullinnix says there is plenty of entertainment and promising weather on Sunday, so folks should head out to downtown Tupelo.
