Regatta float is canceled

There will still be music, food and entertainment, but due to high waters the Remmel to Rockport Regatta float downstream has been called off.
The event is a fundraiser presented by Sykes to benefit the First Step Foundation.
The event will still begin Saturday, June 15, but instead of noon, it will start at 4 p.m. in Rockport where Smokin’ in Style will serve BBQ at the Whitewater Park along the banks of the Ouachita River and then Tragikly White takes the stage.
