Last-Minute Idea: Freedom Fest in West Memphis

Kimberly J. Williams
Just in case some of you still haven’t made plans for the weekend, here’s a great idea for tonight! Head to the Arkansas Delta and West Memphis!

Tonight is the 13th annual Freedom Fest Music and Fireworks Show. The community-spirited celebration begins at 7 p.m. at Tilden Rodgers Park. Participants are urged to bring picnic suppers, lawn chairs and blankets and enjoy an evening of American music and patriotic tributes performed by Southern Exposure, HWY 7 Band, and the Bartlett Community Orchestra. The evening ends with a magnificent fireworks display around the park’s 11-acre lake. Log on to or phone 870-732-7598 for details.

That’s exactly where I’m headed at 5 p.m.!! Come join us!

I wish you all a safe and enjoyable holiday weekend!
