Over the years, we’ve made a point of telling folks that, when you come to Emerson the weekend of the festival, please don’t expect to find an empty motel room. There simply won’t be any.

‘Course, that’s mainly due to the fact there aren’t any motels in Emerson.

The nearest lodging is in Magnolia, some 12 miles north of Emerson.

The official motel of the PurpleHull Pea Festival is the Holiday Inn Express & Suites in Magnolia. (Yes, they allow tillers in their rooms.)

Here’s the contact info:
