Mr. Brookes will lead you to area mounds where you may then get out of your vehicle to hear what is known of their pre-historic inhabitants. This fascinating tour is offered in the morning and again in the afternoon during the festival.
Mounds that will be visited are the Rolling Fork mounds, Carter mounds and Mont Helena mounds, all three of which are on the Mississippi Mound Trail.
What to Bring
Make sure your car has plenty of gas, as you will be driving your own vehicle and will be away from gas stations for a little while.
This will be a self-driving tour that takes place twice during the festival, in the morning at 10 a.m. and again at 2 p.m.
Where to Meet
Interested participants will meet at Mont Helena on Old Highway 61 to view that mound and follow to the other mounds from there.
