It's the ULTIMATE FAMILY ADVENTURE! And it is ONLY at the Tupelo Buffalo Park and Zoo!
Some of our Exotic Animals include:

Bengal tigers have white spots, called “flashes” on the back of their ears. These may be used to signal aggression, when the tiger swivels and flattens his ears in a confrontation. The mighty roar of a Bengal can be heard up to two miles away. When tigers hunt, they catch prey large enough to last for several meals.

Petting Zoo

Our Petting zoo has a variety of different animals. With turkeys, pygmy goats, sheep, pot bellied pigs, "Lucy" the miniature cow, "Ellie" the fallow deer, and some miniature horses. You can even hand-feed our giraffes, "Tall Boy" and "Patches". Don't forget your feed bags for only $1.00 at the gift shop! These are only a few of the animals that we have in our petting zoo.

Town of Woodland

The Town of Woodland, Mississippi, “The Little Town that Can,” is located in the southwest corner of Chickasaw County on Highway 15, and exemplifies great town spirit with projects, special theme events and accomplishments geared to excite and please all citizens of the town. Town officials along with volunteers create projects, decorations, and community fun events throughout the year. Events include service projects and community spirited social gatherings. Decorations adorn the town each month signifying the monthly event/project. At Christmas time, the town comes alive with multitudes of bright lights everywhere as droves of vehicles are guided through this northeast town in Mississippi.

In 2009, the Town of Woodland was awarded the Mississippi Municipal League's Excellence Award in the City Spirit Category at the MML Annual Conference in Biloxi, Mississippi. The Town of Woodland was adorned during 2008 with monthly activities, decorations, and community events as the townspeople came together in support of each other.

In spite of being the smallest incorporated town in Chickasaw County, and even being the seventeenth smallest town in Mississippi, the spirit of “The Little Town that Can”, Woodland, has exemplified true-blue American spirit, Mississippi hospitality, and a spirit of fellowship. The Citizens of Woodland, all races, genders, and ethnic backgrounds, should be recognized as the “best of the best” of all Mississippi towns for their multitude of achievements.

Houston Homecoming
4th of July Celebration on Pinson Square

Celebrate Freedom – Honor Veterans

The Houston Homecoming began back in 1988 and has grown into a community event that draws people of all ages and walks of life to join in the spirit of fun and honor the nation's birth while celebrating freedom and honoring all veterans!

Houston's veterans are urged to climb aboard the Veteran's Express and allow the community to honor them for a job well done. The annual Independence Day celebration and parade starts at the Houston Lower Elementary School with veterans seated in a special wagon that is pulled to Pinson Square. “This community has a strong history of recognizing and appreciating those who have served in the military,” said Rex Sanderson of American Legion Post No. 95. “We feel it is important to remember those who served and especially remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice.”

Children are encouraged to dress up their bikes, trikes, wagons, or other mode of transportation in red, white, and blue and participate in the annual parade, as well.

Gospel music is always a mainstay for Homecoming and local and area groups are enjoyed each year and have included the following: NASH STREET Band, Kay Bain, Rubber Soul, Swing Shift, Evening Show Bank, Paige Horn, Molly May, Kim Poteet, Misty Rea, Bobby Hood, Mitchell Johnson, Danny Watkins, Jones Brothers, Shining Stars of Bruce, Morgan and Morgan, Hearts in Service, Front Porch Rockers, to name only a few.

Music draws many adult visitors during the Homecoming while children's games and activities bring a whole different dynamic to downtown Houston. Every year inflatable slides, jumpers and a rock wall are featured for children's enjoyment and at no charge.

Local vendors are invited to set up food and drink tents, also at no charge.

An amazing Fireworks Sparkle in the evening sky over the celebration occurs shortly after 9 pm which can be viewed for miles around!

Offering a little something for everyone, Houston Homecoming is one event that is not to be missed. Come join the fun!
