New Madrid will be bursting at its seams this weekend for the three-in-one major fall festival on Saturday! Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Christina McWaters invites everyone to check out the Bass Pro Shop’s Big Cat Quest, the street events and the Rendezvous on the River! She tells KZIM KSIM there will not be a dull moment! "Main Street will be completely filled with vendors and we have the car show with the youth fishing rodeo. The most exciting event is in the afternoon when the guys parade down Main for the weigh in with all the big cat fish they've been fishing for all morning!" McWaters says they may be doubling the population but definitely tripling the fun. Activities will be held on Main Street from 9am til 4pm with the fish weigh in at 3pm. To be in the pageant, car show or other tournaments call 573-748-5300.
