FORT SMITH, Ark. (AP) - A community picnic for hundreds of people is planned after Wednesday’s groundbreaking ceremony on the U.S. Marshals Museum in Fort Smith.

Local companies will be on site preparing and serving a wide variety of lunch entrées ranging from hamburgers to fried chicken for the several hundred people expected to attend the event. 

The food at the so-called “Community Picnic” will be available to the first 600 guests on a first come, first served basis immediately after the groundbreaking ceremony.

The U.S. Marshals Museum is to be built on the banks of the Arkansas River in Fort Smith - overlooking Oklahoma.
