Petit Jean State Park is once again hosting the Senior American Special, a fun-filled 3-day special event that includes lodging, a schedule of special daily park programs, and an evening concert. Although the event is designed for senior citizens, all ages are welcome for the fun and fellowship. Information about lodging options is available at 1-800-264-2462.
The park staff and some special guest speakers plan to offer a variety of program topics this year, including "Bird Flight", "Blacksmithing", "Apple Press Demonstration", "Host Plants for Caterpillars", "The Past, Present and Future of Mather Lodge", "Outdoor Cooking", "Petit Jean Mountain and Civil War Times", and more. The grand finale will be a Senior American Special tradition, the "Larry Nelson Family Bluegrass and Gospel Concert".
