JACKSON, MISS— From film to helping others, there’s plenty to do around the state this weekend. 

For film buffs, check out the Oxford Film Festival. For the past thirteen years, the festival has provided the opportunity to experience and celebrate independent films from all over the world and right here in Mississippi. There are over 130 films featured this year, from the categories of comedy, short film, documentary, and even music videos made right here in Mississippi. For more information about the Oxford Film Festival, check out their website http://oxfordfilmfest.com/.

If you’re willing to give to a cool cause, take a chilly dip for the Special Olympics Mississippi’s Polarpalooza. You’ll plunge right into Lake Livingston at Town of Livingston in Madison. Sure, it’s a tad cold, but you’ll be raising money and awareness for the organization. Plus, there’s something for everyone with live music, a 5K, food, a chili cook-off, and face-painting for the kids. For more information about the event, check out the website http://www.specialolympicsms.org/polarpalooza .

If you just can’t wait for Halloween to experience the creepier side of Mississippi’s past, then join the Southern Paranormal and Anomaly Research Society at Beauvoir for Meet the Spirits. You’ll spend the night with SPARS, working with the investigators to catch evidence of the once living at the Jefferson Davis Home and Presidential Library. http://www.gulfcoast.org/event/meet-the-spirits-of-beauvoir/6907/.
