REMINDER: Cash Bus location change

Posted By on Mon, Aug 1, 2011 at 4:49 PM

As a lot of you have heard by now, The Arkansas Times is running several buses to the first annual Johnny Cash Music Festival in Jonesboro on Thursday. If you're looking for a ticket, you're too late. For those who did snag a seat, however, we want to make dang sure all ticket holders are aware that we've changed the departure location

Early in the process of setting up the Cash Bus safari, we informed ticket holders that the buses would depart from Main Street in downtown Little Rock at 3 p.m. on Thursday. Just to make sure nobody winds up standing on Main waiting for the Cash Bus that'll never come, let us reiterate: The buses will depart from the K-Mart parking lot at 10901 Rodney Parham Road promptly at 2:30 p.m. Thursday, August 4. Please be there by 2:15 p.m. at the latest.

For more information or questions, please contact Paige Parham at (501)375-2985. Full details on the jump...


The CASH BUS leaves the K-mart parking lot
on Rodney Parham at 2:30 PM. Please arrive
no later than 2:15 PM. You may park your
cars there for the trip.

There is assigned seating at the venue. Your tickets will
show designated seat numbers.

Seats on buses are a first come, first serve basis. The
first two seats on each row of the buses are reserved for
beer servers.

The bus company prohibits smoking on any of its buses.
Smoking inside and outside The ASU Convocation
Center is prohibited. In accordance with the Clean Air on
Campus Act 734 of Arkansas, smoking is prohibited on
state-supported institutions of higher education.

Enjoy music from local musicians on each bus. Bonnie
Montgomery, Joe Sundell of the Damn Bullets and
Jay Dover of 10 Horse Johnson will each perform on
different buses. A keg of beer, Lombardi Limonata and
water will be provided by the Arkansas Times. Additional
drinks may be brought on board if in a small cooler that
can fit under the seat.

We expect to arrive for dinner around 5 PM and
depart promptly at 6:15 PM. Dinner will be at several
restaurants in the Jonesboro Arts & Entertainment
District. Restaurant details are currently being finalized
but each bus will go to a separate restaurant in this area.
Your $99 ticket includes dinner and a soft drink, tea or
water. Gratuity is included for this. Alcoholic beverages
are available at each restaurant and can be purchased
directly from the bar area. Please tip accordingly.

Restrooms are on board each bus. Arrival time back
to Little Rock will be approximately 2.5 hours after the
concert ends.
