Caddo River Festival invites the local community to come have a big time at the small town car show scheduled for April 28, 2018 in downtown Glenwood, Arkansas.
Thanks to the efforts of his grandson-in-law, Eric Parsons, Max Whisenant's legacy lives on in the Annual Car Show held in conjunction with Caddo River Festival. This will be the second year for this memorial event honoring Mr. Whisenant's dedication to promoting the beauty of automobiles by showcasing them at Glenwood's yearly festival. Mr. Whisenant was the backbone behind this car show for many years even back when the festival was known as "Sawmill Days". He continued to participant in the car show even when his health was failing. The annual event would not be what it is today without the efforts of Mr. Whisenant. He was a "car show enthusiast". Mr. Whisenant is certainly remembered as having the flashiest car or cars in the show. And, he always dressed to match the same "flare" of his automobiles.
This year the Car Show Committee is inviting all of those persons wishing to participate to come out on April 27 for the Parade (lineup begins at 5:00 p.m. on Smokey Bear Lane). Following the parade, there will be the 2nd Annual Memorial Max Whisenant Poker Run.
For more information or to register for the car show, visit glenwoodarkansaschamber.com, go to Caddo River Festival, and download forms under "Downloads".
We hope to see you all out at the car show and that you stay for all of the exciting fun and entertainment of Caddo River Festival.
