|Racing teams to swarm downtown Ferriday|
Saturday the streets of Downtown Ferriday will be filled with nearly 100 road racing teams who are participating in the Fireball Run II Transcontinental Rally and they will be driving some of the most unique vehicles in the world.
Ferriday has been chosen as one of the group's pit-stops and while in town the teams will be treated to lunch and entertainment by the Ferriday Chamber of Commerce.
Fireball Run features team driving vehicles of all types from Baton Rouge to Grand Rapids, MI, on a criss-cross trip that is part scavenger hunt, part "Clue," part road rally, and a complete blast.
The run is also a race to recover America's missing children as each team is assigned a different abducted child and their mission as they continue the journey is to actively search for the child.
Last year, the benefit race raised $3 million and of the 65 children featured, 22 have since been rescued. Organizers hope to have even better results this year.
Set up similarly to the Delta Music Festival, the gates will open at 11:30 a.m. and close at 1:30 p.m. Admission is free.
The event will feature the vehicles, food vendors, the Delta Music Museum will be open and the Arcade will have music videos of the famous three cousins playing on the big screen.
