World’s Biggest Fish Fry
Henry County hosts the World’s Biggest Fish Fry April 25-30, 2016. Since 1961, this event has grown from serving up 1,600 pounds of catfish to over 5 tons cooked and served at the Robert E. “Booby” Cox Memorial Fish Tent. The community comes together for a week of beauty pageants, a 5K run, souvenirs, fish dinners, a rodeo, the Grand and the Small Fry parades and a carnival. Find a full schedule schedule of the week’s events on the fish fry’s website.
