Only about 200 people call Calvary home, but on the first Saturday of November, every year, Calvary’s population grows to 60,000 to 90,000 (not counting mules). The reason for this is the Calvary Lions Club Annual Mule Day Festival. Proceeds of which go to Lions International Sight programs and local charities.
Enjoy a big parade with mules, horses and antique tractors; contests, and all day entertainment. Over 450 arts & crafts exhibitions, concessions, cane grinding, and syrup making make Mule Day a time to remember. It’s 358 days left until the 39th Annual Festival first Saturday of November returns.
