DURANT, OK -- The Magnolia Festival kicks off in Durant.
Festival planners spent Tuesday getting ready for the grand opening. Organizers hung entries for the art show, set up vendor booths and put together rides for the carnival.
The festival starts Wednesday evening at 5 and runs through Saturday at the Choctaw Nation Event Center.
Events include nightly live entertainment, food vendors and fun events for the kids.
This is the second year they're holding the festival at the event center. Festival planners say if it rains, they'll move everything in-doors.
