9th Annual Possum Picnic

Hosted by Mount Ida favorites, the Prairie Grove Band. Always a
fun event, the Possum Picnic will again feature the Possum
Parade with the “Wanna-Be” and “Has Been” Possum queens and
princesses, followed by the annual crowning of the new 2015
Possum Queen. There will also be plenty of food from the Back
