Annual toy show a big hit in rural area

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT)-  Kids in the area got a chance to see toys in action Saturday at the 24th Annual Farm Toy Show.

Roger Gloe is the show manager and says he started the show in 1989 when he lived in Jonesboro. Now, he coordinates the show long distance from Armarillo, Texas.

He says since this is a big farming community, the show is popular. "When I moved to Texas I thought I would quit and everybody said no you cant quit, we like coming to the shows so I continued to do it  so I enjoy doing it and it gives me a chance to travel a little bit," Gloe said.

Vendors from Arkansas and neighboring states get the chance to show off their collections each year the event is held.
