Mulerider mascot to ride across Hot Springs, AR & Little Rock, AR Today and Tomorrow!
Megan Maye, the Southern Arkansas University Mulerider, is saddling up Molly Ann, SAU’s statuesque mule, for a ride across Arkansas to celebrate SAU’s record enrollment this fall. Be on the lookout for Molly’s trailer on the road or for Megan and Molly at key locations in Hot Springs and Little Rock.
SAU’s award-winning video production crew will be filming the famous duo in Hot Springs on Wednesday, November 13, and in Little Rock that evening and into the following day on Thursday, November 14 (see a more detailed itinerary below).
SAU has one of the most unique mascots in the United States, and the footage will be used for SAU’s next commercial highlighting the University’s broadening reach across Arkansas, representing 64 out of the state’s 75 counties. The video is scheduled to debut at the Chenal 9 IMAX Theatre on December 6, 2013.
You are invited to come out and help make the Mulerider’s road trip a memorable one! While this may not be the first ride out of Magnolia for the Mulerider to commemorate the spread of Mulerider pride, the buzz around the recent Texarkana trip was such a success that the SAU crew couldn’t resist the call to bring the Mulerider to the spa city and the capital.
Come out, share the Mulerider spirit, and win prizes. One lucky onlooker will be the winner of an iPad! Snap a photo, post it with the “#ISpyMolly” hashtag on your Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, and you’re instantly entered to win.
Below is the itinerary for the trip. Exact times and locations are subject to change, but the itinerary will be updated online as the trip progresses with more specific times for the various locations.
