Parade Fever in Eureka Springs
By: Faryl Kaye
There is no group of people on the planet that love a good parade more than the residents of Eureka Springs, Arkansas. We probably have more parades each year in our little village than any other city in the country. Last month was our Mardi Gras Parade (pictured here) that was a tremendous success. It was a bitter, cold day but the streets were lined with fun-loving locals and visitors just having a good time.
The next parade is the ArtRageous Parade May 1st at 2PM in downtown Eureka Springs. It’s the Kick-Off for the May Festival of the Arts. The parade theme—Go Hawg Wild! The theme alone guarantees a good time for both visitor and local alike. People will be dressed up as flowers to honor the month of May, or as artists, or maybe even a work of art. You won’t see another parade like this…guaranteed. If you love art and want to have fun put us on your “Must Do List” for May.
