Rain is threatening what some call Corinth's biggest weekend of the year.

While the Green Market has been rescheduled, all other events continue as planned.

Among the weekend offerings include a free outdoor movie, the running of one of the state's oldest footraces and a mudbug smorgasbord.

Umbrellas and raincoats should be packed as the forecast looks bleak.

According to the National Weather Service, the weekend includes an increasingly heavy chance of rain and thunderstorms. Rain chances are at 70 percent for Friday night and 80 percent for Saturday.

Films on Fillmore

The free outdoor movie is set for Friday night with the showing of the 2018 Disney movie "Mary Poppins Returns."

Presented by Main Street Corinth, the movie will be shown on a big screen installed in the CARE Honor Garden at the Corinth Depot at dusk. In case of rain, the event will move to Waldron Street Christian Church.

Corinth High School Drama students will offer games and activities for kids and Disney characters will be hanging out signing autographs and snapping photos.

Coke products along with popcorn and candy will be available for purchase.

Pancake breakfast

The Corinth Kiwanis Club Pancake Breakfast will provide the public with a hearty breakfast of pancakes, sausage, juice and coffee early Saturday morning.

The fundraiser kicks off around 7 a.m. at Waldron Street Christian Church. Cost is $5 for the all you eat pancake breakfast. Children 10 and under, who must be accompanied by an adult, eat free.

Close to 1,000 pancakes will be prepared with all funds benefiting the civic club, Oasis Medical Center and Havis' Kids.

Coke 10K

Mississippi's premier footrace starts at 8 a.m. on Saturday pending a possible short delay due to severe weather.

More than 1,500 participants have registered for the 38th annual race through historic downtown and into the Oak tree lined residential streets of north Corinth.

Donations to the race, co-sponsored by Magnolia Regional Health Center, benefit the local initiative "Kids Get Fit" which encourages physical activity and healthy lifestyles for children.

Green Market reschedules

Crossroads Museum officials enacted their built-in rain date for their first Green Market of the year.

Originally scheduled for Saturday, the large arts and crafts vendor market has been postponed to Saturday, May 11 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Corinth Depot.

Crawfish Boil

The seventh annual Pizza Grocery Crawfish Boil will happen rain or shine on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Crawfish, corn, sausage and potatoes and a drink will be offered buffet style for $20.

The restaurant will also host live music, bounce houses and homemade ice cream during the event.
