Conway bank drops truck giveaway at festival
CONWAY, Ark. (AP) - The popular "Stuck on a Truck" contest at Conway's annual Toad Suck Daze festival is off this year.
Centennial Bank, which sponsored the annual vehicle giveaway, announced Monday that it won't be bringing back the contest during this year's festival in May. The giveaway began in 2001 as "Hug a Bug" and has become a major attraction at the festival in downtown Conway.
Centennial Bank president David Druey tells the Log Cabin Democrat (http://bit.ly/1m1LyF4 ) the bank decided not to do the giveaway so the space can be used as a command center for emergency services during the festival.
The contest gives away a free pickup truck to the person who can stand there the longest with a hand always on the vehicle. Last year's victor won after 93 hours.
