Arkansas Pineapple Whip: A Conway favorite

CONWAY, Ark. (KTHV) - There's something special in Conway that keeps bringing people back for more.

Yes you've all heard of things like Stoby's cheese dip, but there's a cold treat in Conway that has Arkansans making the trek back time and time again.

Something so simple, so distinctive, regular customer Thatch Unruh says it's tough to label it with any recognizable category, other than its own.

"It's not ice cream and it's not a snow-cone and so it's just addicting."

Brooke Wright feels the same way.

"It's not like the creamy flavor of ice cream, but it's not like sherbet or yogurt. It's creamy pineapple."

It's truly love at first bite.

Arkansas Pineapple Whip is a familiar summer destination for many people in Conway.

Conway ArtsFest in need of volunteers

CONWAY, Ark. (KTHV) - The 2015 ArtsFest in Conway is right around the corner, and volunteers are needed to make the week-long festival a success.

On Sunday, the Conway Alliance for the Arts held a public meeting for those interested in lending a hand, as well as artists interested in selling their work. Those in charge of the event say they encourage those in the community to get involved whether it's by showcasing their talents or simply volunteering their time.

"We just want to get people interested and people involved. So, we feel the best thing to do with the arts, is to get people here and give them an idea of the help we are looking for," said Beth Wilson Norwood, chair of ArtsFest 2015.
