arkansas_magnolia_blossomThere’s something especially southern about the magnolia tree, and it’s only fitting that an Arkansas town named Magnolia in the southern part of the state should host an annual Magnolia Blossom Festival.

The county seat for the state’s Columbia County, Magnolia has lined its courthouse square with the trees known for their fragrant flowers that should be in full bloom during this year’s event, set for May 17 and 18, 2013. Of course, there also will be a parade, a queen contest, arts & crafts vendors, fishing tournament and antique car show.

But, as they say in the infomercials, that’s not all. On the same weekend is the 24th Annual World Championship Steak Cook-off. More than 4000 steaks will be cooked on some 70 grills around the square May 18. (Wanna eat? Buy a ticket online ahead of time.)

It’s all sponsored by the Magnolia-Columbia County Chamber of Commerce.
