She said the festival will include favorites from previous years, along with several new activities.
"The committee has been working on this event for months," Whitmire said. "Basically, when we finish one year's event, we begin to look to the next year."
The Walnut Ridge City Council passed new ordinances that will allow them to better control animals within the city limits, take action against properties that are unsightly and/or unsanitary and regulate construction and maintenance of buildings.
