What a joy it was to be at the Persimmon Festival for the parade in 2015! As a former resident of Mitchell, (and a past queen!), I was both surprised and amazed at the amount of parade participants and the big crowd along the bustling streets of Mitchell. Thanks for all the hard work – the preparation before during and after – the countless phone calls, emails, promotions, etc. This takes a lot of work! Thanks soooo much for all the efforts of everyone who worked on the committee. It was a joy to celebrate with classmates at our 35th class reunion. I was so proud! Please share my appreciation with those who made this occur.
I wanna go
Is it too early to think about this year’s festival? Our agency would like more information about setting up a booth.

Thank you so much. The plans for the grand marshal are already in place for this year but will pass it along for next year.
Please fix the Dates. You have 9/24 & 9/26 for Saturday parade??????
Everythinf I find shows the 2015 dates. Where is the schedule for 2016? We have family from out of town who want to come but I need the correct schedule and dates to send to them. Looks like people asked these dates be corrected back in June but you haven’t done it yet. Must I want for 2017 to get the dates and schedule for 2016?
Lynn, the website should be updated with the correct dates etc, Let us know if there still are issues with the site.
Why do you advertise that the festival starts today when it actually starts on Monday????? We drove 2.5 hours to find out that it doesn’t start today. Ridiculous!!!!
