At the “World’s Biggest Fish Fry,” they know catfish and they do it proud!

p4242720The annual West Tennessee festival is a three-day celebration that draws from all points West of Dover. Pageant winners, from the cradle and petite, to the more traditional teens and young ladies, civic groups, marching bands, medical care entities and agricultural assets all participate in this annual bellringer of West Tennessee’s Spring and Summer festival season.

Floats, beauty queens, little princes and princesses, royalty courts, clowns, roving souveneir vendors, pee-wee and high school cheer squads, cowboys, cowgirls and horsemen of all stripes, drag racers, Shetland ponies, motorcyclists, recreation centers, coon dogs, classic and antique cars all fill up the line-up for the big parade. The streets of Paris are lined with spectators who come to view the parade of floats and all, but also people watch the crowd as it migrates as well. Law enforcement support comes from a wide area as well. That is  only fitting for a celebration that draws from Martin to Memphis for participants.
