PARAGOULD, AR - Live entertainment, carnival rides, food concessions, catfish and crawfish feeds, arts & crafts and many more activities are planned for this weekend in the streets of downtown Paragould as part of this year's annual Loose Caboose Festival.

The event is set for Friday and Saturday, and children and residents with special needs and/or handicaps will get a special opportunity to enjoy the carnival early Friday evening.  According to organizer Don Watkins, the carnival will be open from 5 to 6 p.m. Friday for "special needs" residents only, at no admission.  Watkins said several volunteers will also be on-hand at that time to ensure the safety off all of the carnival riders.
