For the Scouts, there will be fishing, Dutch oven cooking, push-cart races, zip lines, fireworks and much, much more.
Best of all, the event is a salute to Texarkana native Ross Perot, the American businessman, former presidential candidate and Distinguished Eagle Scout Award winner. Perot will arrive at the event via helicopter and speak to everyone in attendance.
For Perot, a massive supporter of Scouting for the last several decades, the honor is well earned. Scouts anywhere — even those who can’t attend the event — can earn the National Ross Perot Patch. Click here to learn how.
The event is scheduled for April 10-12, 2015.
