A fun and entertaining next few weekends are in store for residents of Jackson Parish and surrounding areas as the calendar turns to April. No fooling…..
The activity starts with Spring Fling on Sunday, April 2nd. Great deals will be abound all over Jonesboro as downtown merchants will open their doors to the public who have the opportunity to search for that special Easter outfit and other items of interest.
Highlighted by special church services in honor of the resurrection of Jesus, it will be the area children doing the searching for hidden eggs the “long” weekend of April 7-10 as families and friends celebrate the Easter holidays.
It’s back to downtown Jonesboro for a full day of activities the next Saturday, April 15th as the annual Sunshine Festival takes place. The plethora of scheduled events starts at 10:00am with a Childrens’ Parade along Jimmie Davis Blvd. aka “Main Street” where prizes will be awarded to the best decorated and “tricked” out trike and bike.
At the same time the always entertaining Antique Car Show will kick off at Jay Mallard Ford. The Jackson Parish Heritage Quilting Guide will also be displaying their creations at the Jackson Parish Museum, located at 402 Cooper St., from 10:00am – 2:00pm.
Local performers will get your toes to tapping beginning at 10:30 am with a free concert that will take place in the “Pocket Park.” One block over in the Tony Rome Park, children will enjoy playing at the “Bouncy House” and slide as well as mingle among their favorite species of animals at the petting zoo.
