The Annual St. Patrick's Day Dandelion Days Celebration is a family-oriented event, and it's lots of fun! It includes an outdoor bazaar and flea market featuring antiques, relics and collectibles, arts and crafts, and much more. There is also lots of fun, food, street entertainers and even a 5K run. A pancake, ham and egg breakfast, located at the Jackson Civic Center, kicks off both days activities at 7:00am (or there about). But Dandelion Days is also known for its rich local community flavor, one thing that makes it so popular. In fact, a great many attendees come from outside the county to join the fun! Not least of all, Dandelion days is the Jackson Lions Club's largest fund-raising effort and benefits student scholarships and community events.
