Tupelo Sports will be hosting a community pep rally in Fairpark at 5:30 p.m. today before the free “Down on Main” concert series. Ole Miss and Mississippi State fans are invited to come get their pictures taken with the Golden Egg trophy.
Tupelo High School’s football team and cheerleaders are also scheduled to lend a hand.
“Wear your colors – red/blue, maroon/white, purple/gold, orange/blue – whatever,” the Tupelo Convention and Visitors Bureau posted in a blog entry at NEMS360.com.
The Benders and Blue Mountain will present a free concert after the pep rally.
Fairpark occupies the ground where Ole Miss and MSU – then known as Mississippi A&M – played three games in their football series, in 1915-17. Ole Miss won all three.
