By Ethan Nahté

Time is drawing to a close to get applications in for vendors for the Lum & Abner Music & Arts Festival. The original deadline was April 15, but it has been extended to Wednesday, May 1. The event section of VisitMena.­com has a link to the Lum & Abner page. On the right-hand side there are links to forms for a variety of different vendors, ranging from non-profit to commercial to food vendors.

The festival will take place June 7 and 8 at Janssen Park in Mena. This event is presented by the Mena Advertising & Promotion Commission and has been steadily growing year after year.

Live entertainment is a huge part of the event as it runs all day both days of the festival.

In addition to live entertainment, enjoy wonderful arts and crafts, great food, a beer garden, the awesome Lum & Abner Car, Truck, and Motorcycle Show, Kiddie Korner with playground and bounce houses, the Lum & Abner 5K Run/Walk, the Lum & Abner 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament, the RE/MAX Baby Crawlin’ Contest, and more.
