The Heber Springs Area Chamber of Commerce announced that this year’s Fireworks Extravaganza is scheduled for Saturday, July 2 at Greers Ferry Lake. A much-beloved occasion with locals and tourists alike, the evening includes a full roster of events and entertainment for the entire family including the First Annual Paddlemania Kayak Races beginning at 11 am.
The 2016 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.
It’s a quintessentially American tradition to spend Independence Day Weekend celebrating on the water, and it’s hard to find a more beautiful, welcoming setting than Heber Springs and Greers Ferry Lake. Enjoy a day of boating, hiking or shopping and exploring the area, before joining the festive crew of holiday revelers to enjoy this local tradition.
The Fireworks Extravaganza is free, although there is a parking fee for those traveling by car. 2016 Fireworks Extravaganza sponsors include Sonic, the Heber Springs Advertising & Promotion Commission, and Red River Chrysler Dodge Jeep at the Premier Level, and Aromatique, KFFB 106.1 FM, Harps Foods, Baptist Health Medical Center Heber Springs, Eagle Bank, XTO Energy, First National Bank, First Arkansas Bank and Trust, NorthStar EMS, and Red River Boating at the Contributing Level.
