Harvest Hoedown Set by CCAD
The Clay County Arts Council is offering area residents a great way to kick-off the fall season, with a celebration of the harvest and Clay County's farmers. "With boot-scootin friends like Gary Prince and the Sugar Creek Band bringing some good-ole down-home music, and Hog Wild BBQ catering a delicious barbecue meal, we're pulling out all the stops," a CCAC spokesman noted. "The Harvest Hoedown will also include a fashion parade, fabulous silent auction to benefit expanded scholarship opportunities plus a change to the regular Saturday evening programming--offering something for everyone.
The hoedown will be held beginning at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 29, at the Piggott Community Center. Dinner will be served, following by the opportunity to bid on the silent auction items, which will continue throughout the evening. Models from regional businesses will also parade through the tables, showcasing both fall and winter fashions. Gary Prince, and the band, will begin their concert as dinner is concluded.
Advance tickets are now on sale, and are $25 for CCAC members and $30 for non-members. Tickets are on sale at Suzy's, Madpies and The Nest in Piggott and at Honeysuckle and Home and the Water Office in Rector. Tickets are also available from CCAC board members, which includes Gail Burns, Tracy Cole, John James, Linda Robinson, Jane Gatewood, Cody Knight, Glenna Bookout and Cindy McComb.
"It's definitely a first for the Clay County Arts Council," the spokesman added. "And, as usual it'll be an event to talk about, especially when friends remind friends to "wear your boots!"
