The annual Watson Fish Fry, a Southeast Arkansas tradition for more than 50 years, will be held March 16 at 6 p.m. in the gymnasium of the former Watson High School.

Like the Grady Fish Fry in Grady and the Pink Tomato Festival in Warren, the Watson Fish Fry is somewhat of an unofficial homecoming for many of its former residents and is a not-to-be-missed event for many politicians who attend the annual fish fry to touch base with their constituents. Former President Bill Clinton always attended the event while serving as governor of Arkansas.
