PRLog - Aug. 17, 2014 - STARKVILLE, Miss. -- — Once again, it is time to hear the pitter patter of little feet-running to its Annual Travis Outlaw Day. This day was created after the city of Starkville declared August 23, 2005 as “Travis Outlaw Day”. This day was proclaimed because of Outlaw’s accomplishments as a professional NBA player after being drafted by the Portland Trailblazers in 2003. To show his love and gratitude to the community who has supported him from the beginning he hosts “A Day in the Park”-where he gives back to his community with fun, food and wholesome activities. This event marks Outlaw’s 10thyear having this grand celebration.
