Get outside this Saturday with these two events

If you’re looking to bask in the full glory on the sun’s Vitamin D, then here are two events for you to attend tomorrow:

Politix in the Park

Surely you’ve seen the many political signs that have been posted around the metro. True, they’re not too pretty…but they also don’t say much. Don’t pick a candidate based on who has the most signs! Take an opportunity Saturday to speak directly with those running for office during Politix in the Park.

The event takes place at Koinonia Coffee House and offer free food as well as space jumps, face painting, and space jumps for the kids. Koinonia will also offer refreshments for sale, and if you haven’t been there before you should definitely try an Iced Major (caramel & chocolate iced coffee).

Event organizers announced that over one dozen candidates have confirmed their attendance.

Politix in the Park starts at 11 a.m. and runs until 3 p.m.

NOTE: If you’re interested in volunteering to help with this event, a volunteer meeting will be held tonight at 6 p.m. at Koinonia Coffee House (136 S. Adams St.).

Came across an announcement about this event this morning via the Clarion Ledger:

The West Jackson Summer Festival offers hip-hop, blues and gospel at Sheppard Park. It’s free and the fun starts [Saturday] at 9 a.m.

Someone also tweeted about the event:!/Chokl8Tweethart/status/83896796220375041

Unfortunately, that’s the only information we have about the Summer Festival, but if you’re looking for something to do Saturday, swing on by and check it out. Sheppard Park is located on Hattiesburg Street near Jim Hill High School.
