  • Where else can you see over 100 Corvettes parading down a city street? According to Mayor James Conway, McNab, three miles north of Fulton on Arkansas Highway 355, is the place to be to see this sight and many others Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. The 12th annual Twin Rivers Festival will kick off at noon on Friday at McNab City Park. On Friday, there will be a talent show which begins at 7 p.m. and an adult dance will be held at 9 p.m. Booths will be open on Friday, and more activities are planned for Saturday and Sunday. Security will be provided during the festival. “I contacted the president of a Corvette Car Club locally and he has a friend who is involved in a Corvette Club in Memphis and they are all coming,” Conway said. Included in the activities at the festival are high school bands, men and women's arm wrestling, dominoes tournaments, kids slides, sack races and a Twin City Taekwondo performance. Also, on the agenda is a parade at noon on Saturday, including church floats and the Corvettes, along with Hempstead County officials and children's groups. A live auction will be held at 2 p.m. on Saturday and a Visa Card drawing will be held at 4 p.m. on Saturday. Blues artist Rennia Figures will take the stage at 10 p.m. on Saturday. Tickets are $7 each, and DJ Jimmy Williams and Little T. C. will also be performing. On Sunday, an outdoor church service will be held from 9:30-11 a.m. and Marian Lloyd will give a Trip to Israel presentation at 12:30 p.m. A barbecue cook-off contest will be held at 2 p.m. on Sunday, a tradition for barbecue lovers at the festival.
