An evening of pageantry will kick off the 2016 Bentonville  Festival. Friday evening judges will choose two Little Toddler Misses and Misters, a Princess, a Junior Miss, and a Queen to represent the  festival during its 40th anniversary celebration.
“We’re hoping people will come out and enjoy the festival this year,” said organizer Sue Naylor. “We’ve invited several people who participated in the festival in the past to come back for our 40th anniversary celebration.”
The festival offers a full slate of shows, activities, games, contests, and vendors. Saturday begins with a 5K Run at 8:30 a.m. and at  10 a.m. a Baby Contest. A Tractor and Farm Equipment display begins at  11 a.m. and at 12:30 p.m. a Pet Show and Beard Contest will be held on the center stage.
Throughout the day the ROCK organization from Manchester will provide games and  activities for children on the school lawn.
The Grand Parade beginning at 2:30 p.m. on Saturday will be led by Grand Marshal  Barbara Davis.
“I’m very honored to be chosen,” she said. In addition to being a wife and mother, Davis worked as an RN at Adams County  Hospital for 30 years before retiring. She says she enjoys spending time with her four children, her eight grand children and her three great-grandchildren.
Following the parade Ray Fisher and the LAC Band will perform on center stage.
Sunday, Aug.11 there will be a combined church service at 11 a.m. in the Bentonville Community Church. At noon a carry-in lunch will be held at the Burning Heart Campground Cafeteria followed by the gospel group Praise Trio.
