Thousands enjoy 26th Okatoma Festival in Collins

COLLINS, MS (WDAM) - Thousands of people took advantage of ideal weather Saturday to stroll the streets of downtown Collins and shop for unique items, while listening to all types of live music.

It was all part of the 26th annual Okatoma Festival.

More than 150 arts, crafts and food vendors were on hand, selling items ranging from clothing and gifts to chicken and crawfish.

And kids had plenty to do, from carnival rides to rock-climbing.

For the first time, live music was offered on three separate stages.

The event wraps up Saturday night with a street dance hosted by the Cowboy Blues Band.
