36th Annual Elgin Catfish Stomp

It’s that time of year again, now that the holiday season is in full swing, the parade season kicks off this weekend.? The 36th Annual Elgin Catfish Stomp starts on Thursday with the Carnival opening and Friday night will be the Catfish Stomp Pagaent and Saturday will be the parade.? There are many other activities planned and Saturday will have a full schedule w/the parade starting @ 10:00, live entertainment, vendors, car show and of course, catfish stew and friend catfish-all located at the corner of Green Hill Rd. and Hwy. #1, behind Jimmy’s Mart.? I look forward to seeing everyone and I hope you and your loved ones have a blessed holiday season.

    I am looking for information about the entire history of the catfish stomp. I have to write a paper about a cultural event and since I used to live in Elgin I figured I would write about it. if you can send me all the information you have about the history, why it was started ect. I would much appreciate it. Of and the paper is for school and it is due on Tuesday the 9th of December.

    Thank you,
