COLUMBIA, MS (WDAM) - Organizers of Mississippi Governor's Day announced Thursday that the event will be held in Columbia next May.
Members of the Governor's Day Committee visited the Lion's Club of Columbia Thursday to announce the move.
Mississippi Governor's Day has been held in Lexington, MS, for the last two years, but the committee has decided to have the event travel to different towns annually.
The program brings together all of the living Mississippi Governors as well as the descendants of former Governors. A spring festival will accompany the event.
Nancy Barrett with the MS Governor's Day Committee said, "We have decided to move it to Columbia next year which is the home of two time Governor Hugh White. Also, Columbia is one of our earlier state capitals before Jackson, and so that is historically significant."
