Train Days May 5

By submitted, 04/22/19 2:10 PM

HOPE – Hempstead County’s annual Train Days Festival will be Saturday, May 5.

The Southwest Arkansas Arts Council will be set up at the corner of Division and Walnut Sts. diagonal from the Amtrak Depot and the Arts Station with its “Hands of Hope” project.

Started last year at Train Days, the project has more than 190 painted handprints from area children 12 and under. All children are eligible to get their palm painted and to put their personalized handprints on three designated parking spaces.

There is no charge for this chance to become part of The “Hands of Hope” project. Chairman for the event is Bobbie Smith.

For more information, call the Arts Council at 870-777-8200.
