The Popcorn Place, out of Flowood, will have popcorn in sweet and savory tastes such as: cheesy, caramel, barbeque pickle ranch, and Kettle Corn. Northshore Coffee from Jackson will have coffee for those that need a “pick-me-up” or just a “warm-me-up”. Southern Star Pork Skins will have five different flavors to choose from as well.
Toward the end of the week, Genuine MS® will close Barn 14 and move down to the new Trade Mart for the Dixie National Expo. We will still be serving all concessions from Barn 14 plus so much more.
