Sevier County Museum Gearing up for Hoo Rah Days Festival
People of all ages are sure to find something to do at the annual festival in De Queen on October 12th and 13th.
The festival kicks off on Friday, October 12th with food vendors, a Civil War encampment in the antique village and live music on the front porch of the museum annex. The day will be capped off with a free concert from the Bear Creek Boys starting at 7 pm.
On Saturday, October 13th there will be a dog show, antique car show, antique tractor show, veterans parade, contests, talent show and more from 9 am until 7 pm.
One of the highlights of this years festival will be the unveiling of the "Military Honor Garden" on Friday. This is a garden which is being constructed to honor current/former military personnel. If you would like to have a military member honored, here is the form to fill out and send to the museum. For a $10.00 donation (to cover costs), the museum will have your military members name, service branch and rank printed on a dog tag which will hang in the garden. The garden is being built thanks to a $4,500 donation from the Home Depot Foundation.
