Coffee, smoothies, six different kinds of beer on tap, food from area restaurants, a kid’s zone, a facial hair fashion show – and a band or two – or fourteen. It’s the highly anticipated and much touted Sneaky Fest, tomorrow in Fondren! The location is just across from Mimi’s Family and Friends (in the parking lot once used by the MARKET). Sneaky Beans Coffee Shop owner Byron Knight said yesterday there’s been a lot of planning put into making this a stellar event. “It’s going to be epic”, he told us as final details were being put into place – and as he was placing the fest message on the Capri marquee. Knight also said Sal & Mookie’s, Babalu Tacos & Tapas and several other area restaurants would have food for sale.

In addition to the food, music and beverages, the Bean is hosting a facial hair fashion show. It’s the first we’ve seen in Jackson! Kids will have fun, too, bounce houses, a rock wall, fun from the Jackson Zoo, an interactive music booth, face painting, and other activities.
