Fireworks Extravaganza

Fireworks Extravaganza

The 2017 Fireworks Extravaganza will be held at Sandy Beach on the shores of Greers Ferry Lake. Partygoers will arrive by boat and by car to enjoy kids’ activities, food vendors, and live music beginning at 7:00 p.m. 

 

At 9:30 p.m., one of the largest fireworks displays in Arkansas will light the skies above the lake, as thousands of breathtaking fireworks are choreographed to music broadcast on KFFB 106.1 FM. Beautifully mirrored in the lake’s surface, the show is equally magical whether viewed by boat or on the shore, and each year’s Fireworks Spectacular is better than the last. 

 

The Fireworks Extravaganza is free, although there is a $10 parking fee for those traveling by car.

World Championship Cardboard Boat Races

World Championship Cardboard Boat Races

The theme for the 2017 World Championship Cardboard Boat Races is DC versus Marvel. Race participants will stretch the limits of their ingenuity to design boats that represent their favorite DC or Marvel comic. Whether the choice is Spiderman, The Hulk, Thor or Wonder Woman, these cardboard crafts are sure to be amazing feats of engineering. 

 

Boat registration will begin at 8:00  am on Saturday July 29th at Sandy Beach on Greers Ferry Lake in Heber Springs, AR. Boat races will begin at 10:00 a.m., with timed heats for both children and adults. The Pride of the Fleet Prize will be awarded to the boat that best combines innovative engineering with artistic design, while the Captain’s Award goes to the team with the greatest spirit and crowd involvement. And of course, the Titanic Award is reserved for the boat with the most dramatic sinking. There’s plenty of additional fun planned for the day, with a treasure dig and a watermelon-eating contest.

 

 

 

After the races, head over to Dam Site Marina for Rock the Dock Concert Series.  The concert is free and you can listen from your boat or from shore beginning at 6 pm until 9 pm.  The band will be announced soon.  Also, during the concert, a name will be drawn from the pre-registered Cardboard Boat Race partipants as the winner of an 8 hour pontoon boat rental. (Valid for Mon-Thurs, holidays excluded.)

 

 

 

 

Enjoy the spectacular surroundings of Heber Springs, a jewel of a town located just 60 miles north of Little Rock, on the shores of Greers Ferry Lake and the Little Red River in the foothills of the Ozark Mountains.
