This week is our City's "World's Biggest Fish Fry". It's like a National Holiday around here. The World’s Biggest Fish Fry is a premier event for Paris – Henry County and West Tennessee. The last full week of April annually attracts people locally as well as nationally. Visitors come from across the country to enjoy the festivities.
The whole festival revolves around the “Fish Tent” whereby the last account over 12,500 pounds of catfish is served with all the trimmings. In addition to all you can eat catfish, you will find parades, carnival, rodeos, catfish races, dances, arts, and crafts to name a few. Events actually begin early in February with beauty pageants leading up to the week-long celebration.
