When the national cameras arrive to cover the Hogs this fall, Fayetteville will be a bit more ready for its close-up thanks to some newly-installed signage on Dickson Street.

The Fayetteville Advertising and Promotion Commission recently designed and purchased 96 banners to replace the faded and damaged light pole signs that were installed as part of a Dickson Street enhancement project more than a decade ago.

The new red banners include a Razorback logo and the words, “Welcome Hog Fans.”

City crews began installing the new signs Friday morning and are set to finish the work sometime on Monday.

Here’s a few photos of the new banners:
