Jesus Day


The first Sunday in May is known as "Jesus Day" in Selma. It's when local Christians of all denominations literally meet in the street for an evening service.

Folks bring lawn chairs and enjoy the shade along Lauderdale Street. They listen to short sermons, watch drama presentations and hear soloists, praise bands and choirs. Oh, and there's also plenty of food!
