To celebrate the King of Rock and Roll, head to the Tupelo Elvis Festival. It’s a celebration of all things Elvis. From the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Competition at the BancorpSouth Arena to the Running with the King 5K and annual Elvis Look-a-Like Pet Parade, the festival pays homage to Tupelo’s favorite native son.

To get a taste of the triatholon life.. or to just cheer on a friend, check out the Heatwave Classic Triatholon at Reservoir Pointe in Ridgeland. The race consists of a half-mile swim in the Ross Barnett Reservoir, a 24-mile bike ride along the historic Natchez Trace Parkway, and a 10K run along Ridgeland’s multi-use trail.

Experience the best of Mississippi filmmakers, try out the Best of Oxford Film Festival in Ocean Springs. It’s an all day affair this weekend with movies featuring dance, performance, and more.
