The 4th Annual Get Downtown Festival was a great success and we appreciate everyone who came out and enjoyed the day!

We started bright and early with the Peak Fitness Get Downtown 5K Race, a 1K Fun Run and even a 1k Dog Walk for the furry friends!

All afternoon a Cornhole Tournament was enjoyed by many, sponsored by 870 Cornhole Nation.

Later in the day, live music started on the main stage located right in front of the historic power plant in downtown Paragould. Festival goers were entertained by local bands including the Happy Campers and the Crafton Brothers Band. We ended the night with Dillan Cate followed by the award-winning Ricochet, brought to us by the Paragould A&P Commission.

For more information about past festivals and future activities follow the Greene County Future Fund on Facebook or check here for updates.

Currently the Future Fund has joined in on the efforts to save the power plant that was the backdrop for our festival. The current proposed project will renovate the Power Plant so that it can be used for future events and adds a Farmer’s Market and Outdoor Amphitheater.

Thanks to all who attended and all who helped support or put on the festival!
