Battlefield Park Festival raises funds for elderly

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Folks came out to enjoy live music, food, and activities for the kids at Battlefield Park Saturday. 

Organizers say the 2015 Battlefield Festival will help raise money for the community.

Proceeds from the festival go toward helping elderly residents in the Battlefield area with minor home repairs. 

Willa Womack said, "It's very important, because all day long, you hear just violence. I've said many times that change has to come from within, and once we ourselves want change, then we start communicating with our neighbors."

The festival is put on by the Battlefield Park neighborhood association in partnership with the Hinds County Sheriff’s Office and the City of Jackson.
