New on Tuesdays: Auction Night at the Hoe-Down

Sunday, September 30, 2012

The Ozark Mountain Hoe-Down is inaugurating live auctions on Tuesday

nights starting Oct. 2.

Anyone who has anything to sell can bring it the theater, 3140 E. Van

Buren, on Tuesday mornings starting in October. There is no charge to

put an item in the auction; the seller receives the sold price minus

the auction house's commission. Doors open at 5 p.m., with Col. Bill

Williams taking the stage to start the bidding at 6 p.m. No charge for

admittance. Seats can be reserved by calling the Hoe-Down,


"We want to give tourists a reason to stay in Eureka Springs during

the week," said Hoe-Down manager Chisai Childs.

Childs said the auction will be year-round and is a good way to use

the theater on its dark night, when there is no show. An auction of

motorcycle parts and gear is planned. For more information about
