This Weekend across the Metro

JACKSON, Miss. (MISSISSIPPI WEEKEND) -

Sing it with me... It’s the weekend...it’s the weekend!! Here’s a look at some fun things happening in the metro this weekend!

Friday, March 25th

Today is the start of the Spring Market at the Mississippi Trade Mart. It kicked off this morning at 9am, and will go until 8pm. The market features more than 100 vendors from across the south- with food, art, home décor, jewelry, fashion and more! Don’t miss Cupcakes and Cocktails which is from 4pm-8pm at the market. Tickets for that are $20, and you get to sip, and snack while you shop.

Live music always puts me in a good mood, and helps me unwind from a busy work week. Another option tonight is to check out violinist John Uzodinma playing at Trio Eatery in Jackson from 9:30 - 11pm.

Saturday, March 26th

We can’t talk about the start of spring without mentioning beautiful plants and flowers. So the Heirloom Plant Sale at Eudora Garden is the perfect way to start your Saturday. Eudora Welty was born and raised in Jackson. She was most commonly known as the author of Death of a Salesman, but she also had a real passion for gardening. Eudora dedicated her life to caring for her family, writing, and gardening, and the Eudora Wetly House and Garden is still in operation today in Jackson. They are selling plants and flowers on Saturday morning from 9 until they’re all sold out so - you might want to get there early!

Then it’s the return of the JXN Flea Market! The March Market and party will be at Ecoshed. You can expect local vendors, music, food, and of course- more shopping! This market is from 11am - 4pm.

The Hal’s St. Paddy’s Parade is on Saturday and the theme for 2022 is Go Big & Come Home! They are delivering on the name with so many events that you can see here, and don’t forget the parade starts at 1pm!

But let’s say the parade isn’t your thing- you can still have fun this weekend! The Twerk Queenz Tour is coming to Jackson and let me tell you twerking is a workout! They don’t talk about Meg the Stallions knees for nothing. The two-hour class will be at Taboo Dance and Aerial Fitness from 12:30 pm to 2:30pm. If you’re a beginner- they got you covered, apparently, it’s a 4 part class with twerk 101, twerk cardio, twerk high intensity, and twerkography! The instructor Simone is flying in from Miami and as you can tell, she did not come to play!

Sunday, March 27th

The lady day of the Spring Market is Sunday from 11am - 5pm! Don’t miss your beat.
