Event Description:
Grenada Lake Association Safe Baoting Festival June 11-15, 2014

One of Mississippi's largest festivals is set to begin in Grenada, Mississippi on June 11. The 22nd annual Thunder on the Water makes a splash with a carnival on Wednesday and Thursday followed by a hurricane of events that run through June 15. The festival began as a way to promote safe boating and at one time included boat racing. In the ensuing years, the marine racing ran aground, however, the promotion of boating safety continues to this day. Last year over 113,000 people attended the event, according to event organizer and committee chairperson, Wanda Roche. "We have promoted this year's event very heavily and are expecting an even bigger crowd this year", Roche said. Roche, who has been on the festival committee for all of the event's years, helped to co-found the event with Jeff Plummer along with the generous support of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
