Rolling Fork, Mississippi

Rolling Fork is the birthplace of the Teddy Bear and each year at the Great Delta Bear Affair festival, chainsaw artist, Dayton Scoggins, carves another 12 foot sculpture for the community. Be sure to tour the large chainsaw-carved bears around town.

Located on Highway 61, the Blues Highway of the Mississippi Delta, Rolling Fork is a quaint rural town and the county seat of Sharkey County. There is not a stoplight anywhere in the county.
