It’s almost time! Our 2014 New South Weekends series will begin on Friday, August 29 with the annual Downtown Block Party at College Park on Russell Street from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.
Mark your calendars now, and plan to join us for a block party to celebrate the start of the MSU football season. Restaurants from around the Russell Street and Cotton District area will set up in booths with your favorite yummies, and Bill Thurlow from Thurlow’s Party To Go will DJ the evening. The family event will feature face painting and inflatable jumpers for our youngest Bulldog fans. We are also pleased to welcome Bully and the Mississippi State spirit squads for our first Pep Rally of the season.
By popular demand, Downtown Block Party will also include the fan favorite Tailgating Wear Fashion Show at 7:00 p.m.! The MSU Fashion Board will walk the runway at College Park, modeling the latest maroon and white fashions from Starkville’s Main Street member boutiques. So, bring your lawn chairs to enjoy the show! You’ll see a glimpse of the best in tailgating and game day fashion for men and women from these shops: Deep South Pout, Bookmart, Denim and Lace, B Davis Shoes, R Tabb & Co, Style Revel, Stinky Feet Athletics, Reeds, Luna Bella/Merle Norman, LA Green, George Sherman Clothiers, Occasions, Libby Story, and The Bride and Groom.
