Fireworks at the Fourth of July on the Arkansas River

Romance under the Fireworks on the Arkansas River, July 4th

Don’t miss the riproaring “old fashioned” fun at The Empress this Fourth of July!  We’ll start the day with a unique neighborhood breakfast picnic where everyone brings a dish to share.  This year the Downtown Neighborhood Association will provide Mimosas. There’ll be lots of old fashioned conversation and sharing before everyone heads out to do the things people do on our country’s birthday.  But the fun won’t end there for guests; the Clinton Library will have free entrance and The 2011 World Series Trophy will be on display in the Library’s exhibit Play Ball! The St. Louis Cardials. FREE professional photographs will be taken with the Trophy from 9:30-2:30. Schedule and ticket information about photographs with the Trophy available http://www.clintonlibrary.gov/free- . In the evening, head out to the River for the Arkansas Symphony POPS presentation.  Afterwards the sky will light up with the best fireworks display in Arkansas, all beside the Arkansas River.  Bring your blanket, spread it out and enjoy!!  Don’t miss an opportunity to enjoy a fun day of nostalgia and a great night at Arkansas’ award winning bed and breakfast, The Empress of Little Rock!!
