46th Annual Jonquil Festival a Springtime Tradition

Credit:Mario Garcia

One of my favorite places to visit this weekend is Old Washington State Park, Arkansas during the 46th Annual Jonquil Festival March 14-16.This festival has always represented the beginning of the Spring season with thousands of Jonquils surrounded by historical buildings, architecture, restored landmarks from 1824-1900 with plenty of arts and crafts, great food,home tours and even surrey rides. Be sure to check out the antiques along with the guns and knives collection. Old Washington State Park is historically known for the place where James Bowie had his famous Bowie knife made on his way to fight at the Alamo in Texas.

This year the festival runs 9 a.m.-5 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, then again from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. on Sunday. Admission is FREE a $5 fee will be charged for parking.

Historic Washington State Park is a National Register of Historic Places site. Old Washigton is located about 45 minutes East of Texarkana. (see map)

Make sure if you go there to pick up some fresh fried pork skins or homemade Kettle corn!
