We just completed The 12th Annual Renaissance Euro-Fest on 10-10-20 in Ridgeland, MS and although we had to reschedule it a week due to weather, it turned out to be great. Perfect weather, proper social guidelines and impressive entries of autos and motorcycles made for a most successful event. We had no Indore gatherings and maintained strict health protocol for the benefit of all. If need be, the same procedure will be followed in Natchez but hopefully we will have left the Covid issue in our rear view mirror!  We will present engraved awards to 18-20 classes, Sponsor's Awards and The Best Of Natchez, both Vintage and Nouveau. In addition, highlights include: presentation of the colors and our National Anthem, a march by the Hub City Highlanders Bagpipe and Drum Corps, strolling Southern Belles for photo ops, a seven plane air show by The Bulldog Formation Flight Team out over the river, just off the bluffs of the lawn at Rosalie Mansion, drive up Red Carpet Awards Presentation and a concluding wrap up party at one of Natchez's great Southern restaurants. A few other aspects are being developed at this time and will be announced when finalized.  In addition to the show, Natchez offers many enjoyable and historical venues. It is one of our Countries original communities, started by the French over 300 years ago. Many Euro Fest participants have taken long weekends or even a week to stay and see all the area has to offer.
