Arkansas Game and Fish CommissionUSA -( The 19th annual Southark Outdoor Expo is coming to the El Dorado Conference Center, Saturday, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Sept. 9, and anyone who loves the outdoors should make plans to attend.

Christy Cottrell, foundation development assistant for the South Arkansas Community College Foundation, says the event looks to be bigger and better than ever. They’re looking to outdo last year’s Expo, which placed first runner up in the Best Festival category by the Arkansas Festival and Events Association.

“We are excited to once again have Mrs. Laura Rogers and Mr. Johnny Knighten at the Expo with activities for the kids and exhibits teaching about different aspects of the AGFC,” Cottrell said.

Contests include the Hero 5K Run/Walk, a rib cook-off, an outdoor photo contest, and a dog show. All contests include cash and prizes for contestants. Live bands will be performing throughout the day. A full day of hands-on activities and exhibits for outdoor enthusiasts, families and children will take place.

Admission is one or more canned or packaged food item per person, which will be donated to a local food pantry.
