Get Into the Fun!
The Daffodil Festival gives you plenty opportunity to join in on the fun! If you're into vintage cars you can swing by the Antique Car Show. There's a spectacular art show where you can buy fabulous works of art from local and regional artists. Get ready for winter at the Quilt Show and Art Sale in the 1st UMC Great Hall/Welcome Center. Take a walk through history to see the Civil War Encampment and battle re-enactors. And don't forget the Championship Steak Cook-off on Saturday. It will be the best steak you'll ever eat.
WalMart sponsored Children’s Activities are not just for small children – they are for those who are “young at heart” also! You will not want to miss “The Daffodil Cardboard Challenge” happening Friday Morning downtown. There will be 20 teams of students from 4th – 12th grades from public, private and homeschoolers competing to build the best “creation”. During their 3 hour time to build the Teams will be given several “roadblocks” that they will have to maneuver through. You can also come try your hand at the “Make and Take” art area where you can paint your own canvas to take home Or stop by the Arkansas Game & Fish area to make a nature craft both located next to Postmaster Grill. All these creative areas are free of charge.
Look for the new ALFIE award winning rides & inflatables located on the Farmer’s Bank Parking Lot and the Postmaster’s Grill Parking Lot. There will be new rides to excite the younger, pre-teen and teenager. You will want to take advantage of the special armband hours on both days that will let you ride everything on both lots for one price. Our trackless train will be back again this year, loading passengers next to the Farmer’s Bank Building. Be sure get ready to take those selfies with the 15’ Elsa, Spiderman and the Hulk. All to make the children’s festival time as much fun as the adults!
