Swamp People coming to Dogwood Days | Community Spirit
The 26th Annual Dogwood Days Festival will be held Saturday, May 12, in Horseshoe Bend.
This year's festival will be decidedly "swampy" compared to years past. The stars of the History Channel's popular series Swamp People, Troy and Chase Landry, will be the featured guests.
Meet the pair, get their autographs and have your picture taken with them.
The day's events officially start at 10 a.m. Crafters from all over Northeast Arkansas and Southern Missouri will be displaying their wares. There will also be concessions, pony rides, kids' games and bouncy houses. FNBC's kiddy train will also be making runs throughout the day.
Since it's an election year, there will be a "Meet and Greet Your Politician" and a Politician Hour on the main stage.
The day wraps up at 5 p.m. with Smokin' Butts BBQ Supper and a street dance featuring the David Sherrell Band from Melbourne.
