The sixth annual Vicksburg Heritage Festival on Saturday will meet the demands of the public.

Those demands were voiced at the fifth annual Vicksburg Heritage Music Festival. The Bluz Boys, that fun amalgamation of daytime professionals and nighttime get-down, on-a-mission-from-God party people, were big hits with the Vicksburgers at the festival’s 1988 installment. The next-to-last band on the bill, the Bluz Boys stirred the crowd to a ripe revelry and, as with any good thing, the crowd wanted more.

“They were tremendous hits,” festival chairman Joe Neely said. “The overriding comment was,’Bring them on last, and bring them back.’”

He will.

The Bluz Boys close the show on Saturday, capped by what Neely describes as “a surprise finale.”

Gates at the Vicksburg City Park Pavilion open for the festival at 1:30 p.m. Saturday, and the music gets cranking around 2 p.m. Lawn chairs,blankets and quilts to sit on are encouraged;coolers are not. Food and drink will be on sale there.
