Presented by the Natchez Garden Club on March 17, the Historic Natchez Tableaux is an elaborate annual affair. Illustrating life in antebellum Natchez, the tableaux has been delighting audiences since 1932. Commencing the ceremony, children dance around a maypole in celebration of spring. Over 200 local performers participate in this dramatization through song and dance. Also recognized at the event were this year’s king and queen of the Natchez Garden Club, Miller Jordan and Julia Bray.
