New date and location could be in the works for FreakFest
MADISON CO., Miss. (WLBT) - Organizers of an adult pool party blocked by the Madison County Chancery Court could soon be rescheduled.
“New date and location coming soon... stay tuned for updates” was the message posted on the FreakFest 2022: We Outside Pool Edition Facebook page.
The event was slated for July 3, at a property known as Penquite Park on Highway 16 West in Madison County.
Days later, on July 1, Chancery Judge Cynthia Brewer issued a permanent injunction against property owners Earnest and Earnestine Penquite, and others from advertising, promoting or holding any events like FreakFest on the site unless they obtain a conditional use permit from the board of supervisors to do so.
The property in question is zoned A-1 agricultural, R-1 residential, and C-2 Highway Commercial.
Parties like FreakFest, which would have included a swimsuit twerk contest, mechanical bull riding and alcohol, are not permitted on sites with those zoning classifications without a permit, court records indicate.
