BENTONVILLE, Ark. — Another local annual tradition has been canceled this year.
The 2021 World Champion Squirrel Cook Off in Bentonville was scheduled for Sept. 25, but officials chose to cancel it last month.
According to a Facebook post, the event was canceled based on the health and safety of all involved. Event officials say the cancelation of Bikes, Blues and BBQ along with other scheduled events put pressure on them to reevaluate the decision.
