Mena, AR, May 13, 2016 — Mena’s signature event, the 39th Annual Lum & Abner Festival, is quickly approaching and will be held this year on June 3 & 4. Voted “Best New Festival in Arkansas” in 2006 by the Arkansas Festival & Events Association and “Top 20 Events in the Southeast” in 2010 by the Southeast Tourism Society, the festival has received statewide publicity in various newspapers, specialty publications, and television.
Putting on such a major event is no easy feat and requires many volunteers, beginning as early as Wednesday, June 1 with set-up, through both days of the festival, and finishing on Sunday, June 5 with clean-up and teardown. Interested in helping? If so, please call Donnie Crain, Festival & Marketing Coordinator with the Mena Advertising & Promotion Commission at (479) 394-8355 to discuss when and how you might be able to best assist in supporting this major event for the community.
