The Covington County Chamber of Commerce will host the 29th annual Okatoma Festival on Saturday, May 5, 2018. This year’s theme is “Home Sweet Home.” The special guest for the day will be recording artist and native Travis Clark. Pairing solid “Real Country Music” story-telling with a blend of modern and traditional country sound, Clark is a fresh take on popular country music. His original songs range from rockin’ country hits, to big ballads, to traditional country anthems – all telling honest stores about life, love, and lessons learned from growing up in rural Mississippi. Backed by a band of deeply talented musicians, Clark is an energetic entertainer with a unique sound that has broad appeal. The event begins at 8 a.m. with the annual 5K Run/Walk. Meanwhile, numerous arts and crafts booths and food vendors will be located at every corner in downtown Collins. Live entertainment, a health fair, quilt exhibit, art display, children’s park, fair rides, rubber duck race, golf tournament and much more will be provided. The traditional street dance will be from 6 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. with the Cowboy Blues Band.
