LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Crazy Hog fans will roll into Little Rock over the weekend. As thousands tailgate and cheer on the Hogs, vendors gear up for a flood of Hog fans.
Steve Jenkins with Jenkins Enterprises will deploy a small army to War Memorial Stadium loaded down with Hog gear. He said games in Little Rock traditionally provide his company a 20 percent spike in numbers.
"All week long we've been stocking these shelves here. I mean, it's a constant restock period for us, so we definitely see a boost about two weeks out from the Little Rock game. Now obviously there's a big boost at the beginning of the season as well," said Jenkins.
Jenkins added that the hottest ticket item over the weekend will be game day necessities.
"We'll see a big boost on stadium cushions, foam fingers, pom poms. Things that are game day oriented," said Jenkins.
Jenkins told THV 11 his employees worked significant overtime just to meet the demand of the Hogs' first game in Little Rock.
