Thank you to everyone who participated in or attended our Bootlegger Daze at the Calico Rock Museum.
In case you missed the event, you can still see our first special exhibit The Bootleggers. The exhibit includes tidbits on the only major motion picture ever filmed in Calico Rock, stories from folks about the filming and stars, and how bootlegging influenced our culture. The exhibit is free to the public and open Tuesday-Saturday 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. To tour the exhibit, go to the Calico Rock Museum & Visitor Center on Main Street in Calico Rock. The exhibit will be open now through Rodeo Weekend on June 11.
