Enjoy a Simpler Time...
Bring your family to enjoy the summer fish fry Fridays in the Magnolia Midlands!
Its a tradition in the south to fry fish on Fridays and indulge in all the hushpuppies your heart desires. Its a sacred time of family, reminiscing, and slowing down the day to remember what matters in life.
The Magnolia Midlands Travel Association decided to harness the nostalgic tradition of fish fry Fridays by sharing the stories of some of our locals. If your mouth is watering by the end, come pay us a visit!
You're as welcome here as you are at your grandma's table.
The Douglas-Coffee County Chamber of Commerce, Main Street Program, and Visitor Center, along with the guidance of the City of Douglas, have created the very first Gopher Tortoise Festival to be September 6-7 in downtown. The festival was created around the goal of generating more traffic through the downtown district over the weekend with live entertainment by Dark Desert Highway Friday night with a street dance, regional showcase all day Saturday, and live wildlife shows throughout the two days. There will be delicious food, beautiful arts and crafts, fun children's activities, and more! You won't want to miss this!
Blondale Thomas, of the City of Douglas, was elected the President of the Magnolia Midlands Travel Association for the new term. The travel association represents the Magnolia Midlands region in marketing events, attracting visitors, and working together on special projects. The association meets monthly to discuss events in their communities, share ideas, and fellowship with one another while educating themselves on tourism news.
