Long-Time Events Celebrate the Fourth

July 4th means a lot of different things to people…but for most it definitely usually ALWAYS includes family, food and fireworks!

These two long-time events in the Arkansas Delta feature all that…and more!

Celebrate Independence Day with food, fireworks and fun at the 83rd annual 4th of July Homecoming and Picnic in Piggott on July 3. The venerable event starts with a parade at 9 a.m. Live music, carnival rides, great food and spectacular fireworks are on tap throughout the afternoon and evening. Call 870-324-0055 for details.

Fun for the entire family can be found at the 66th annual Homecoming Picnic at Wynn Park in Corning on July 3. A parade through downtown kicks-off the event at 9 a.m. Several pageants, live entertainments, games for kids and rides are also on this year’s schedule. The evening ends with a fantastic fireworks display! Learn more by calling 870-857-3874.
