The HARK Festival, an innovative new festival celebrating the history and heritage of the Ark-La-Tex (Arkansas, Louisiana, and Texas) region, will be held, 10 a.m.-4 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 12. Admission is free.
HARK encourages students to explore the history of Northwest Louisiana and express their findings creatively. Held in conjunction with the Pioneer Heritage Center’s Open Day on the campus of Louisiana State University Shreveport, the first-ever HARK Festival will feature a competition for students (with cash prizes!) to display their knowledge of Ark-La-Tex culture through writing, art, music, handcrafts, and more.
Students who are interested in participating can learn more at the official website, www.harkfestival.com.
