It's fall, and the harvest is abundant. The farmers of the Clay County area are happy, and it's time for a party. In fact, it's time for a hoedown--a harvest hoedown to be exact. In the spirit of the fall season, the Clay County Arts Council is hosting a Harvest Hoedown beginning at 6:30 p.m. this Saturday, Oct. 29, at the Piggott Community Center.

In an evening featuring of both entertainment, and celebration, the CCAC will showcase fall décor, fall and winter fashion and the music of Gary Prince and the Sugar Creek Band. Those attending will also have the opportunity for more fun, with a fabulous silent auction to benefit the Clay County Arts Council scholarship fund.

"Everyone is invited to tap those toes and get your tickets for this boot-scootin' high-ole time," a spokesman noted of the event. "Hog Wild BBQ will cater the dinner, which features not only their traditional barbecue but their famous chicken, too--with all the usual great side dishes."

Dinner will be served at 6:30, followed by a performance by Gary Prince and the Sugar Creek Band. Throughout the evening those on hand will also have the chance to see a parade of fashion selections, and will have the opportunity to bid on a number of tremendous items offered in the silent auction.

Tickets for the first-ever Harvest Hoedown are $25 for members of the CCAC and $30 for non-members. They're available at Suzy's, Madpie's and The Nest in Piggott and at Honeysuckle and Home and the Water Office in Rector. Tickets are also available from board members of the arts council.

"The Harvest Hoedown promises to be an evening of lively action, good music and plenty of fund times--a new fall celebration," the spokesman concluded. "But, don't forget to wear your boots!"
