WALNUT RIDGE, AR (KAIT)- A special ceremony will take place Monday, to usher in the next phase of the Beatles sculpture coming to Walnut Ridge.

Charles and Jackie Snapp will present the deed to the property they donated to the Downtown Walnut Ridge Association.  The sculpture site will be on 2nd Street, just south of its intersection with Main Street.  The site consists of two store fronts that will be altered to create the sculpture scene.

The Tourism Committee of the Lawrence County Chamber of Commerce plans to erect the sculpture which will be 10 feet high and 20 feet wide.  It is an artist rendering on the Beatles' Abbey Road album cover.

The ceremony will be at 1pm at the site.  The sculpture commemorates the Beatles' surprise visit to the Walnut Ridge Airport in 1964.
