Published 7:00 am Friday, June 1, 2018

Lining the streets for this year’s 35th annual Blueberry Jubilee will be a variety of food choices for attendees to enjoy.

Blueberry Jubilee food vendor chair Kristy Dale said several unique meal and treat options will be available at the Jubilee this year, including ice cream, funnel cake and alligator and crawfish subs. Dale said that while all food vendors will be located along South Julia Street they will be located at one of three lots during the event. Some vendors will be near Poplarville Public Library, others will be set up by the County Courthouse and the majority will be serving food near the Mississippi Power Company office.

Although Dale is looking forward to sampling food from the new vendors at this years’ Jubilee, she said the vendors who come back year after year are what make the event so special.
