TUPELO, Miss. (WCBI) — It was the pefect weekend for an outdoor arts festival.
The 43rd annual Gumtree Festival is underway in downtown Tupelo, with fine art from 105 artists from 12 states on display.
The two-day event is traditionally held on Mother’s Day weekend so visitors can find the right piece of art to purchase for mom.
This year’s festival has a special meaning in light of what Tupelo has been through with the recent devastating tornadoes.
The festival will run again Sunday from 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
