Dear Y'all,

Oh, MERCY—time is drawing NIGH-er and NIGH-er! And my excitement is getting HIGH-er and HIGH-er!

The Sweet Potato Queens® Million Queen March Weekend Schedule

Is posted here!

Check it out and make certain you have all your OUTFITS ready to go! So much MORE MUSIC this year—thanks to our SPONSORS:  FireFly® Sweet Tea Vodka, Michelob ULTRA, Comcast, Pepsi, and Clear Channel—be sure and show all these folks BIG LOVE!

**This is the basic schedule of events and times—you will note that there is no mention of Jello Wrasslin’, Crown Raffle, Pole Passes, and other Highly Entertaining Fundraising Games that we traditionally have going for the benefit Blair E. Batson Children’s Hospital. Not to worry—THERE WILL BE PLENTY OF HILARIOUS OPPORTUNITIES FOR YOU TO BE PARTED FROM YOUR $$ FOR THE CHIRREN—there’s just not ROOM to include them all on the O-fficial Schedule. You will be advised, in detail, very soon about some of these Opportunities so that you may properly prepare—in areas of Outfits, Training and, of course, Funding!

The O-fficial SPQ™ Weekend Passes and Bathrobe Brunch™ Tickets

are available now in the SPQ™ Store by clicking here!

Please NOTE:  we are “strongly urging” you to order in advance—to give us better planning ability—and THERE IS A $$ PENALTY FOR WAITING UNTIL YOU ARRIVE TO PURCHASE—so no whining if you dawdle about it and have to pay more when you get here. 

It’s time to make your BRAVO! Big Hat™ Luncheon Reservations!

Call 601-982-8111. And note: there is a late fee here as well. We really need you to make your reservations in advance. ONCE AGAIN—JEFF GOOD WILL BE WITH US AT BRAVO!, TO THE UTTER DELIGHT OF ALL THE QUEENS! You’ll recall that last year, he’d gone off somewhere with his pesky family for “quality time” or some such stuff that did not interest us at ALL. Well, he learned his lesson and he WILL be with us this year.  He should be punished for last year though, don’t you think?

PARADE VIRGINS—and all Queens



Simply go to the SPQ™ STORE in the Hilton—easy to find, don’t worry—and TammyAlycia and TammySara will have all your info and passes waiting for you.

Here are some upcoming OPPORTUNITIES FOR US TO BE TOGETHER, before the Parade Weekend—hope to see some Queens and Spud Studs™ in the audience!
