Paddleboat arrives in Pocahontas for tourism boost

Posted:

 

POCAHONTAS, AR (KAIT)-  A 64 ft. paddleboat docked in Pocahontas Saturday. The boat's grand entrance included a police escort and members of the community there to mark the occasion.
     
The Pocahontas man behind the boat's arrival, Mikey Johnson, hopes the boat will boost tourism. 
     
The paddleboat will sit near AgriGrow for several weeks so the public can see it, then Johnson will move it to a warehouse and hand it over to Black River Technical College students to restore it, all before the paddleboat finally hits the river.
