Description of Event:

One of Mississippi's largest festivals is set to begin in Grenada, Mississippi on June 9. The 18th annual Thunder on the Water makes a splash with a carnival on Wednesday and Thursday followed by a hurricane of events that run through June 13. The festival began as a way to promote safe boating and at one time included boat racing. In the ensuing years, the marine racing ran aground, however, the promotion of boating safety continues to this day. Last year over 113,000 people attended the event, according to event organizer and committee chairperson, Wanda Roche. ""We have promoted this year's event very heavily and are expecting an even bigger crowd this year"", Roche said. This year's event has more activities than ever before. Some of the scheduled events include the midway show, arts and crafts, 5 mile run/ 3 mile walk, a professional rodeo by JBarB Rodeo, professional wrestling, helicopter rides, Crossroads Cruiser car and motorcycle show, a fishing rodeo and tournament, tractor pull, a world-class fireworks exhibition by Pyrotecnico, a youth beauty pageant, blues and country concerts performed by nationally recognized stars, and of course plenty of great food to eat.
