MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) - It was another eventful day in the Queen City as a well-known popular attraction returnEd.

The 18th Annual Soulé Live Steam Festival made its way back to downtown Meridian, drawing hundreds of people for the 2-day event.

The mission is for people to be educated about steam engines. Visitors got to see in person how these steam engines work and learn the history behind them.

One local we talked to said when coming to this event, you always learn something new.

“I tell you, what’s encouraging to me is that this is the first weekend in a long time I’ve seen Meridian going full steam. We‘ve got a lot going on, not only at the MAX, where I work, but with the Jimmie Rodgers race, the Soulé Festival, and so many things that are happening downtown at one time,” said the director of the MAX, Mark Tullos.

The event is hosted at the historic Soulé Steam Feed Works, America’s last intact steam engine factory.
