Barraque Plaza Canopy Repaired
Many, many thanks to Rick Rhoden at the Pine Bluff Street Department, as well as John Brown and Cody Mount for the repairs to the panels on the Barraque Plaza pergola. The metal cable holding a section of the panes was snapped during high winds that came through our downtown.

With cooler weathers beginning, the plaza is the perfect spot for outdoor dining.
