November in Tupelo came and went faster than anyone could say “pass the gravy.”
We saw the unveiling of the long-awaited Vietnam Veteran’s Memorial Wall in Veteran’s Park, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats rocked Fairpark during the Back Porch Blues concert, and the leaves began to turn from green to beautiful reds, oranges, and yellows all over town.
Here are ten #MyTupelo photos we loved in November in no particular order, enjoy!
Like we said, November brought the beautiful fall foliage to Tupelo like it does every year. There’s no better place to see the changing colors of the leaves than on the Natchez Trace Parkway, as you can see from @rachelridge’s photo above. We’d definitely recommend pulling the car over and taking it all in before you take a picture, though. ¯_(ツ)_/¯
The Elvis Presley Birthplace is always a great place to take pictures around town, but I don’t believe we’ve ever seen a photo captured at the angle @bybowenpan found before.
The Vietnam Veteran’s Memorial Replica Wall was officially unveiled and opened to the public this month, a 60 percent scale replica of the Vietnam Memorial Wall in Washington, D.C. Daily Journal photographer Thomas Wells took what was probably the best photo of the year when he captured retired USMC Master Gunnery Sgt. Bob Verrell pausing for a moment of silence before the dedication of the wall on November 2nd. The photo was picked up by many major news outlets and circulated all over the country. You can read more about the touching dedication ceremony from the Daily Journal here.
Starbucks may have the market cornered on the Pumpkin Spice Latte, but you can only find “A Christmas Story” Latte at Butterbean!
The only thing better than a photo of a buffalo at the Tupelo Buffalo Park & Zoo is a photo of someone taking a photo of a buffalo at the Tupelo Buffalo Park & Zoo.
One of our favorite moments of the year was seeing Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats at the free Toyota Back Porch Blues concert. Seems like @jasondouglas had a great view and a great time as well!
Oh, and @_anthonyteague_ continues to amaze us with his photos around town. Here’s his shot of the confetti-filled conclusion to the Back Porch Blues concert.
November is great because it’s just cold enough for the leaves to begin to change color but not so cold that you can’t cruise the Natchez Trace with the top down. See our local WTVA weatherman Matt Laubhan’s example above.
You can find cars once owned by Elvis, Liberace, and B.B. King at the Tupelo Automobile Museum. @albooth2 took a great photo of B.B.’s 1978 Rolls Royce!
The fall colors were on full display for @strange2075 and his drone as he soared above the Tombigbee State Park.
