HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - A first of it's kind festival for the Magnolia State will be hosted in downtown Hattiesburg this month where the theme is "a return to roots."

Taking a step back in time, Heritage Day 2010 will feature southern craftsmen, artisans and farmers as a way for folks to understand the importance of reconnecting with all things homegrown.

It'll be a scene right out of the past which the city hopes will become an annual event, complete with educational exhibits, seminars and hands-on activities for the entire family.

 "Lots of times when they see something like this they start to realize what went in to it and if nothing else, they just appreciate the clothes they're wearing more or the dishes their using, said weaver Jan Pipher, "It's a richness, you know, it's a richness to you life to know how these things came to you."

Heritage Day is scheduled for Saturday, June 19th. The Friday before farmers are invited to attend a seminar on creating sustainable farms which will take place at the train depot. You can go to heritageday2010.com for more information.
