Terry Scoggins Memorial Stage Dedication And Celebration

Newport, Arkansas’ downtown development organization, DRIVE, is planning a day-long dedication of the new downtown outdoor entertainment stage located on Front Street on April 7th.  The stage will be dedicated to the memory of Terry Scoggins, a life-long support of Newport and the downtown area.  The day’s activities will be a celebration of things that Terry loved, primarily music and fun.  The event is free-admission, and activities will start with the stage dedication at 10:00 AM.

Bands that will play throughout the day include Kevin Smith with Grateful Impressions of Jerry Garcia, Revolution The Band with Southern Rock, John Paul Keith playing music from the roots of Rock and Roll, Seeing Red with the best of the 80’s through today, and Elmo and the Shades with classic Rhythm and Blues and Rock.  Music will start at 10:30 AM and run until 8:00 PM.

The event is Dog-Friendly and Kid-Friendly, just like Terry.  Fun events through the day will include bounce houses for the kids, bubble blowing fun and sidewalk chalk art.  At 3:15 PM, a dog parade will allow the furry friends who attend to strut their stuff.   MORE
