Paragould, AR

show info

Paragould is an anomaly in many ways. The town itself is on a ridge that stands out above the rest of the river delta nearby. This gives the town a nice scenic vantage point, and slightly cooler temperatures than neighboring cities. It is also the landing site for some extraterrestrial space rocks back in the 1930s, and the city even kept the largest chunk to put on display. It is a quaint and curious place, but a great one to live in.

Loose Caboose Festiva

Oddly named, but always a good time, the Loose Caboose Festival is Paragould’s very own country fair style music festival. With Ferris wheels, free music from blues, country, and rock ‘n’ roll bands, and food stands galore, this is one shindig you do not want to miss. Founded in 1990 as a tribute to this fine town, it has since expanded into a huge extravaganza and people from all around the state come for a rowdy good time at the fairgrounds. Sign up for the 5-kilometer if you are feeling fit, or just nosh down a fried Snickers bar, it is up to you.
