Fire Ant Festival
The zany Fire Ant Festival, held each October, is a tongue-in-cheek tribute to the profoundly bothersome,imported fire ant. A wacky idea from the outset, one of its highlights is a Fire Ant Calling Contest. How do you call a fire ant? It’s anybody’s guess, meaning all entrants stand an equal chance of winning. A series of unusual events round out the weekend. Always a great event. Held on the historic Courthouse Square in downtown Marshall, (903) 935-7868.
