This according to a recent press release from Washington State Park, Arkansas.

Take time to tour the historic homes and grounds or take a surrey ride through this 19th century town. There will be live music, featuring country artist John King, Saturday, Mar 18 at 11AM.  The Jonquil Festival will include something new this year, for the first time ever a singing competition on Saturday from 2PM – 4PM.  If you would like to compete all you need to do is bring your own CD or musical instrument.  Information about the singing competition can be found on their Facebook page.
