Annual Loblolly Fest brings thousands to downtown Laurel

LAUREL, MS (WDAM) - Thousands of people visited downtown Laurel Saturday to help it celebrate its heritage as a Sawmill town.

The annual Loblolly Festival had lots of arts, crafts and food vendors, who sold corn dogs, chicken-on-a-stick and plenty of barbecue.

Chainsaw artist Dayton Scoggins also demonstrated how he makes his works of art.

Live music and train rides were also provided.

The event is held each year on the first Saturday of October.
