See Arkansas First bus rolls into Hardy

Wednesday, October 7, 2009

Photo/Tammy Curtis A large crowd came out on Sept. 25 for the See Arkansas First bus stop in Hardy at Dr. Thompson Park. The event was to allow residents to register for prizes to be given away and to provide an opportunity for the public to pick up literature about the many attractions available within the state. The event was sponsored by the Main Street Hardy organization.
Despite the rain, a large crowd showed up to sign up for prizes and share lunch in downtown Hardy Sept. 24 for the See Arkansas First bus stop that was rescheduled.

The bus was a hit with the public as many registered for the ATV, bicycle, kayak and camping package on display at the event in Dr. Thompson Park.

Welcoming the bus were Main Street Hardy President Donna Cruse, Executive Director Kim Wilson and other members of the Main Street Hardy organization, which hosted the event. Also present was Hardy Mayor Nina Thornton along with Hometown Radio who provided live remotes.

The crowd was also treated to Petit Jean brand hot dogs. The manufacturer is one of the corporate sponsors of the tour. Cooking for the crowd were representatives from the See Arkansas First tourism organization. The Mammoth Spring Strings entertained the crowd in the fully decked out stage that was recently put in downtown Hardy for events. The Strings were the first group to play on the stage and delighted the crowd with their country favorites.
