Organizers of the celebration say it is a great way to celebrate the rich history and tradition of the county.

“As other people have said bicentennial plus one because we had to postpone last year because of events last year, but we are here to try to spread the history. The county spreads a sense of community and tries to bring people together on this historical event,” Alex Beaver, Perry County Mobile History Museum, said.

Two hundred trees were planted to represent the county’s 200 years in existence.
