Museum Monday: Marianna/Lee County Museum Sponsoring Arts in the Park


Kimberly J. Williams
I’ve loved museums my entire life…and after working in one for 10 years, that love only grew stronger. On Mondays, I will share some of my favorite museums located within the 26 counties of eastern Arkansas.

Happy Monday!! I hope everyone had a great weekend!

Today’s blog features an upcoming museum event that will be great fun for the entire family! The Marianna/Lee County Museum in Marianna, along with the Community Foundation of Lee County, is sponsoring the 2010 Arts in the Park in the town’s historic downtown square. The event is scheduled for Saturday, May 22.

This year’s entertainment is the Bouffants. Considered one of the best party bands in the South, the group’s musical repertoire features the best, upbeat music of the 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s. The band is also known for their creative costumes and their “big hair” and pink boas!

The concert is free and open to the public. Everyone is invited to bring a picnic dinner and lawn chairs and enjoy an evening of family-friendly entertainment.
The concert begins at 6 p.m. For more information, phone 870-295-3223 or 870-295-5075.
Have a great week!!
