Big Cat Quest postponed due to "dangerous" high water | Events
If you had plans to attend next weekend’s Big Cat Quest in New Madrid, better reel them in.
The Chamber of Commerce announced today the event, scheduled for Saturday, June 15, has been postponed.
According to an email from Christina McWaters, executive director of the chamber, “high water and dangerous river conditions” have forced them to reschedule.
The event will now be held on Saturday, October 5, in conjunction with the Bootheel Missouri town’s annual Fall Festival.
McWaters said all of the activities, including the youth fishing rodeo, beauty pageant, as well as the washers and catfish tournaments have been moved to the new date.
In addition to the Bass Pro Shop’s Big Cat Quest there will be a 5k run/walk, an auto show, live music, and a petting zoo.
