Promenade at Chenal hosts car show


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- Sunday was a great day for cruising around with the top down as The promenade at Chenal hosted a car show, called Cruzin at Chenal.

Collectors and custom car enthusiasts were able to show off old hot-rods and more modern rides.

Organizer Dave Roberts offered some reasons to justify making the trip in case you had family obligations today.

"We give away a first place award but you know we're out here to have fun. We like showing off our cars. And there's some cars out here, I promise you the kids have never seen before, so maybe it's a little bit of a history lesson too," said Roberts.

Roberts added that, all told, about 75 cars went on display today.

Jewish food and culture celebrated in Little Rock


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- Bridging cultures and celebrating; that's the idea behind Sunday's party at War memorial Stadium.

It's the annual Jewish food festival, and plenty of Jewish culture can be found as well.

Organizers point to the good that comes from festivals like this one.

"Sometimes when we come together on Holy days we pray differently and we celebrate differently, but on this day all the entire community comes together - all the Jewish community is welcome and we get to celebrate who we are as a people," said Rabbi Winnick.

Rabbi Winnick also said that in addition to bringing together various Jewish communities, it opens the door to sharing for people of all faiths.

City helping local breweries reach out to more customers


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) – The Little Rock brewery boom is attracting attention from the city and the Chamber of Commerce, who are now looking for ways to help the local beer businesses grow.

Things are going well at Stone's Throw Brewery downtown. It's been less than 18 months since the taproom opened, and they've already outgrown their current space. On Tuesday, the brewery received permission from the city to add picnic tables and a beer garden outside, and to expand its hours.

Appeal dropped in Buffalo River hog lawsuit


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Federal agencies will have a year to do a new environmental assessment of a hog farm near the Buffalo National River after a federal appeals court's ruling.

The 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals granted the U.S. Department of Justice's motion Friday to withdraw its appeal of a previous ruling requiring the new assessment. In December, a judge ruled that federal agencies had not properly assessed C&H Hog Farm before guaranteeing about $3 million in private loans.

Also Friday, the Arkansas Pollution Control and Ecology Commission reinstated a temporary ban on new permits for large and medium hog farms near the Buffalo National River.

Etsy Fest to showcase local culture this weekend


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- On Saturday, more than 2,000 people will come to Little Rock to explore what the local artisan scene is all about.

It's a part of what some Arkansans are calling Etsy Fest: a festival that offers all types of art, jewelry and other trinkets made by local vendors.

"I bet I have 120 pieces right now," said Etsy seller Lisa Bryant.

Bryant took up making clothing eight months ago when she began taking used clothing and refurbishing them into her own designs. It began as a hobby and has now flourished into a small business housed on the website Etsy.com.

"I didn't want to make a website or a web store and Etsy made it so I didn't have to put that level of effort in and I could still make my product available," Bryant continued.
