Shoestring Summer Fling

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) - You could hear the exciting sound of a New Orleans brass band without leaving the city of Jackson tonight, thanks to Southern Komfort Brass Band.

They were performing at Duling Hall in Fondren for the annual Shoestring Summer Fling. It's a fundraiser for Operation Shoestring, which kicks off summer camp on Monday, and the executive director says there will be plenty for the children of central Jackson to do.

Robert Langford said, "Focusing on summer reading, swimming lessons, tennis lessons, basketball, robotics, also some really cool things and without the resources we just can't do it, so the money we raise tonight, absolutely goes toward making that happen for our kids."

The music and fun started at 7pm and ended at 10pm.

Tickets were 20-dollars at the door and there was plenty of outdoor activity, as well, with the kick off of the first all-day.... Fondren's First Thursday festival.
