Promotion on WCIA Our Town Paris 


Festival Chairman, Brian Blair, was interviewed live during WCIA Channel 3's visit to Paris on August 31. 

The festival pamphlet listing the events downtown will be available for download in early September as well as being available at local banks and businesses.


While the PCHS Homecoming game is being held 2 weeks before this year's festival, the parade is still being held during honeybee weekend on Saturday morning.  The parade will follow the same route as in previous years.


The committee has arranged for a lot of FREE Live Music downtown.  On Wood St. Friday night: Heartland and Battle Creek Country and then on Saturday after the parade: The Troy Stone Band and No Response.  The popular local band Switchback will be rocking the Sons of the American Legion beer tent on both Friday and Saturday night.


A last minute additon to Honeybee Weekend will be the re-scheduled FIREWORKS show that was postponed from the 4th of July (weather permitting).  The Honeybee Committee, with the help of the City of Paris and First Farmers Bank and Trust will be bringing back the popular band 15th & Hulman to play at the West Lake park before the fireworks.


Unfortunately, there will not be a Car Show this year due to lacking someone to organize the event.  The committee is working to get this popular event back for the 2013 festival.
