Ripley Star Spangled Celebration an Explosive Success

The Ripley Star Spangled Celebration, held this year at Clayton Womack Park, was nothing short of a tremendous success.

There were waterslides, face painting and more for the kids. Sweet Tea Jubilee played the best blues this side of Memphis. Food vendors had everything from bacon wrapped hot dogs to banana fudge cake. An amazing fireworks presentation.

It was a great event at our community with the proceeds being split between Together for Tippah and the Main Street Downtown Revitalization program.

A great event for a great cause is a recipe for success. It was certainly that and more.

Civic pride. Community involvement. Patriotism. We can only hope the next event displays more of the same.
