southark-expo-cowboys1Among the many other attractions at this year’s free South Arkansas Community College Outdoor Expo, set for Sept. 10 at the El Dorado Conference Center, will be the Dallas Cowboys on Tour.

Two 18-wheel trucks allow fans to experience the NFL team remotely. The first truck is an interactive museum that houses numerous historic exhibits, including all five of the franchise’s Lombardi Trophies, life-sized mannequins of Cowboy Hall of Fame inductees Bob Lilly and Emmitt Smith and lockers of the team’s Super Bowl Most Valuable Players.

The second is a Dallas Cowboys Pro Shop with a selection of officially-licensedmerchandise and team apparel.

Also with the Cowboys set-up will be the 84-foot Dallas Cowboys Grilling Products booth. The full line of products for outdoor cooking on display will compliment the Expo’s Phil Herring Rib Cook-Off, which will award $1,000 to the first-place team. Deadline for entry is Monday (Aug. 29).
