MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Editorial by Tracey Rogers, Vice President and General Manager of WMC Action News 5:

Memphis in May is definitely tops when it comes to events in the Mid-South.

I know there was a bit of disappointment when 2015 marked the end of Sunset Symphony, but how exciting is it to find out about the new events launching this year.

The Great American River Run has been added, which is a half marathon and 5K that will be held on May 28. That's along with the 901Fest, which will celebrate all things local, including musicians, artists, vendors and food.

An airshow and fireworks display will also take place over the mighty Mississippi. How cool is that?

Tell me what you think. Are you excited about the new additions to Memphis in May?

Memphis in May, along with this year's new events, definitely make this A Better Mid-South.
