Farmers Bank & Trust hosted its third annual South Arkansas Outdoor Social in Columbia County on Sept. 16-17. The two-day, three-event benefit served as a fundraiser for the Arkansas Game & Fish Foundation.

Families participated in the free fishing derby on Friday, September 16.

The affair consisted of a free fishing derby at the Southern Arkansas University Engineering Pond on Friday, Sept. 16, then followed on Saturday, Sept. 17, with a competitive trap shoot at the Farmers Bank & Trust Trap Shooting Range at Southern Arkansas University’s facility along Columbia Road 13 nearMcNeil.

The winner of the event was the SAU Trap Team. The champions took home a $2,000 prize as well as numerous individual gifts, including custom coolers featuring Arkansas Game & Fish Foundation graphics. The benefit concluded Saturday night with a free Red Dirt Country concert at Southern Arkansas University’s Alumni Center. The show featured the Texas-based Drew Fish Band, as well as fellow Lone Star State act, Saints Eleven.

All proceeds from the two-day, multi-event benefit went to the Arkansas Game & Fish Foundation. The nonprofit organization serves as a fundraising arm of the Arkansas Game & Fish Commission. The auxiliary’s mission includes supporting conservation efforts throughout the state, as well as property acquisitions to help enhance fishing and hunting opportunities in Arkansas. The Arkansas Game & Fish Foundation also aids in enhancing youth interest in outdoor and recreational activities, education, and more.

In total, the two-day benefit saw dozens of volunteers from Farmers Bank & Trust, Southern Arkansas University, and the Arkansas Game & Fish Foundation participate to help make the South Arkansas Outdoor Social possible in 2022.

For 50 years, the city of New Boston and surrounding areas have come together to celebrate the end of summer with New Boston Pioneer Days. With the pandemic canceling the popular event in its 50th year last year, this festival is sure to be a hit! Farmers Bank & Trust is a proud silver sponsor of the event.

This weekend, August 13-14, the Pioneer Days Rodeo kicks things off. Click here for all the rodeo details. The “Hottest Festival in Texas” is presented by the New Boston Chamber of Commerce, and there is fun for the entire family spanning four days, August 18-August 21, 2021. 

“We’ve got an ideal place for entertainment downtown with the covered pavilion, stage, and sound system,” New Boston Chamber of Commerce President Tim Graham said. “We can already tell from the response we’ve received from vendors and sponsors; they’re going to make sure this thing is a success this year.”

Fun for the Family

Johnson Brothers Amusement will be setting up carnival rides on the midway, along with arts and crafts and food vendors. Live music is happening every night. Admission to concerts is free to the public, and free parking is available. The Chamber encourages people to bring their own lawn chairs as seating is limited under the pavilion.

Destroyer-KISS Tribute Band will be performing Thursday night, and the Street Dance will be Friday at the festival grounds under the T&P Trail Head Park Pavilion with JoeDale & Friends performing at 8:30 p.m.

“I grew up here in New Boston, and this festival has grown a lot,” Graham said. “We used to have a big street dance and that was always really popular so we’re bringing that back this year.”

Headliner John Schneider, aka “Bo Duke”

Saturday morning, the New Boston Volunteer Fire Department serves a big pancake breakfast, followed by a Hazzard County, USA-themed parade at 10 a.m. To keep with the theme, this year’s headliner is John Schneider & The Hazzard Band. John Schneider is well-known as Bo Duke in the action/comedy series The Dukes of Hazzard.

“School is about to start back up and this is one last chance to end the summer with a bang,” Graham said.
