MINEOLA, TX (KLTV) - The Extreme Makeover team has given the details for the "Move that Bus" day Thursday. The Extreme team says everyone is welcome. In fact, they hope to have thousands of East Texans at the site. If you want to participate, here the schedule for Thursday:
8am: Shuttles start running from Wal-Mart to the Car family home. Do not try and drive to the site. You will be turned away and sent to the Wal-Mart lot. 10am: Production crews start filming big crowd shots. Noon: The BIG REVEAL.
The Extreme team says that no one will be allowed to walk into the neighborhood or park nearby. Only people riding the shuttle buses from Wal-Mart will be allowed in.
Anyone wanting to donate a certificate for goods or services or cash to the family needs to have that donation in to Texas Bank and Trust in Tyler on Grande Road or either Longview branch by 10 a.m. on Thursday so it can be presented to the family.
Some of the public has been asking if they can tour the house. The Extreme team says no. The house will not be open to public tours. The show will air in 6-8 weeks and you can see it on TV at that time.
They advise that you should plan to be there a few hours for the production crews to get enough shots of the crowd. It's your chance to be on national TV!
