Town of Jonesboro enjoys Sunshine Festival

Cloudy skies with sporadic sprinkling of rain was predominant but it couldn’t stop hundreds of area residents and visitors from enjoying the Sunshine Festival that was held in Jonesboro this past Saturday. Highlighting the day long activities was the 24th annual Jackson Parish Classic & Antique Car Club Show, a children’s parade down Main Street and a free concert by Brian Sivils. Patrons also enjoyed browsing open-air booths of many local businesses, organizations and vendors, as well as getting the opportunity to meet author and former Hodge resident Joel Crowson, who was introducing his first novel.  

Dozens of classic and antique cars and trucks at least 25 years old were on display at the car show held on the grounds of Jay Mallard Ford. First thru third place trophies were presented in 16 classes: Antique Cars; Antique Trucks; 1955, 1956, & 1957 Chevy’s; Mustangs, Sport Car; Muscle Car; Street Cruiser; Street Rod; Open Modified; and Late Model. There were also trophies given for Best of Show, oldest automobile, automobile that traveled the greatest distance and to the visiting club with the most cars entered.
