The Sweet Potato Queens®
Weekend — 2018
Thursday, March 22 – Sunday, March 25
Parade? No Parade? Who Knows?…but EVERYTHING ELSE is on!
We will still take over the Hilton. We still dress up. We still have floor parties. Big Hat at Dragos, the Bathrobe Brunch. All the same but no big hill to walk up if we don’t parade!
Note–if there is no parade, this means NO PASSES will be required!
HOTEL: Our Host Hotel is the Hilton-Jackson on County Line Road. To make a reservation: Call 601-957-2800 & speak ONLY to BILLIE BURNS. DO NOT SAY “reservation” until you are speaking to him. If he is unavailable, leave a message & he will return the call. You may also email him at email@example.com.
DOOR DECORATION CONTEST CONTINUES. BRING YOUR PARADE OUTFITS – there will be a big statewide dinner going on in the Ballroom so we want to give them a good show as they come & go! Built-in audience – thanks, Skipper Westbrook! You can bring a few throws if you wanna – to give to the non-queen guests & gawkers but no need to load up. *
* If the Parade is going to happen, we will let you know in plenty of time to stock up on throws.
Patty Peck Honda donates a zippy blue Honda for us to raffle every year – 100% of the proceeds go to Friends of Children’s Hospital.
