When you hear cannon fire Friday night (around 7:30 pm), you will know it is Scout-O-Rama time at Spring Lake Park in Texarkana. BSA units from all over the 4 State area will be camping Friday and Saturday nights. The gates open to the general public at 10:30 AM Saturday and close at 4 PM.
The civil war cannon will go off Saturday just before noon, and several times through the event that day. At 1:00 and 2:30 the civil war groups will have a skirmish. In the same area you will find mountain men, Iron Muncher blacksmiths, bladesmiths and more.
Getting hungry? The best chili cookers in the 4 States area will compete in an ICS Cookoff. Chili serving will take place from noon until it is gone. Tickets are only $5 a person with proceeds going to help Scouting in the Ark-La-Tex. Looking for something else, check out our various food vendors.
BSA troops will have exhibits and demonstrations. Learn stuff, climb on ropes, throw things, have fun. There will even be a pinewood derby.
Houston Connection will be back. See their exhibits, learn Native American dancing. LifeNet will be there, along with police, local ham radio group and many other groups from the local area.
Weather permitting, we will have a fireworks show around 8:30.
