Clydesdales, Sonic Boom to Highlight Amazon Themed ZDD Fondren Weekend | Community Spirit
In a press conference held Thursday morning in front of Fondren's Duling Hall, organizers announced plans for the Second Annual Zippity Doo Dah® Weekend in Fondren. The fun begins Thursday, March 22 and will end with the BankPlus Zippity Doo Dah® Parade on Saturday, March 24. The weekend will start with a bang and end with a BOOM. As a special part of the weekend, it was revealed that the world famous Budweiser Clydesdales would be in Fondren all weekend. If that's not enough, Friends of Children’s Hospital will present the Patty Peck Honda Doo Dah ™ Blue Car Giveaway, a raffle of a brand new 2012 Honda. The winner will be announced Saturday night after parade. And, JSU's Sonic Boom will be featured as part of the Saturday parade!
Kicking off the three-day fest on Thursday, March 22, BancorpSouth presents Arts, Eats & Beats – an evening in Fondren featuring a variety of local bands playing throughout the historic area, in addition to Fondren merchants and restaurants staying open late.
