|Delta Festival Saturday|
The Seventh Annual Delta Music Festival is planned for Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. in downtown Ferriday along Louisiana Avenue.
This year's inductee, Pete Fountain of New Orleans, will have an exhibit dedicated to him within the museum and receive a star on the museum's "Walk of Fame" sidewalk.
After musical performances from talent throughout the state, the induction ceremony and dedication of the Arcade Theater will take place. Fountain's induction was previously recorded and will be presented in the new facility. Fountain will be unable to attend Saturday's events due to a prior committment.
The Arcade Theater, a new addition to the museum, is a replica 6,500-square-foot facility including movable seating for 300 and a professional sound and video system. Ribbon cutting ceremonies were held in March with Ferriday natives Mickey Gilley and Jim Brown present.
The original theater, built in the late 1920s burned in the 1950s and was permanently closed in the 1970s.
Museum director Judith Bingham announced that they are compiling a scrapbook for the theater. Bingham is asking former patrons of the theater to submit their memories and come by the museum for a photograph.
At the festival, a performance by local favorites Easy Eddie and the Partyrockers is scheduled at 2 p.m. Jason D. Williams of Memphis, reminiscent of Jerry Lee Lewis and Elvis Presley, will headline the show.
