Honoring David Ruffin
October 26, 11:00 am – 1:30 pm
Don’t miss this opportunity to celebrate Meridian’s own R&B great and one of the front men of the Temptations, David Ruffin! You’ve heard his raspy baritone vocals on classics like “My Girl,” “Ain’t Too Proud to Beg,” and “(I Know) I’m Losing You.” A star in his name will be installed on The MAX Walk of Fame on Front Street followed by a parade to the Temple Theater, led by the Jackson State Marching Band, where a section of 8th Street will be named “David Ruffin Boulevard.” All events are free and open to the public.
