The 4th of July Celebration highlights one of the most popular holidays of the year. Supported by the Jackson Parks Department, local musicians perform music concerts throughout the summer in the City Park. In late July, summer brings about the annual Homecomers Festival. Located uptown, this festival showcases live entertainment and serves as the city’s Homecoming Celebration. The community comes together for the Veteran’s Parade, honoring those who served our country. The Marching Band Festival scheduled in October signals that the autumn season has arrived. December would not be the same without the Christmas Parade and the evening Festival of Lights, where crowds gather on the streets to celebrate one of the most anticipated days of the year. The community finds its entertainment activities in diverse ways. Main Street Lanes can make for a wonderful night of fun. Flickerwood Arena is home to several events including rodeos, livestock exhibitions and tractor pulls. Rocky Holler is home to “Haunted Hayrides” in the fall and many tours and activities on the weekends all year long.

Water activities are found at the Jackson City Pool and Trail of Tears.
