POPLARVILLE, MS (WLOX) - Poplarville merchants will roll out the blue carpet this weekend for their annual Blueberry Jubilee.

The 32nd annual Blueberry Jubilee is an event that attracts thousands of people to downtown Poplarville each year. The event features all things blueberry.

Not only can you buy tasty blueberry filled treats, but you'll also have the opportunity to pick your own blueberries, participate in arts and crafts, and also enjoy some live entertainment.

"Poplarville is just a friendly place to go downtown with all the merchants we have," said Shirley Wiltshire with the Blueberry Jubilee Council. "This is our day. Instead of rolling out the red carpet, we roll out the blue carpet, and we welcome you into Poplarville."

Wiltshire says the Blueberry Jubilee is rain or shine.

The fun begins Friday evening at 6 p.m., with a blue grass band at the main stage, followed by story tellers.
