Fireworks return to Fayetteville during Bikes, Babes & Bling

Almost every year for my entire childhood, my family and I would load up the minivan and head to the Northwest Arkansas Mall to watch the city’s annual fireworks display on or around the 4th of July.

A few years ago, the fireworks were moved to Baum Stadium, and two years ago, the city discontinued the fireworks display due to budget constraints.

This year, the folks behind Bikes, Babes & Bling look to re-kindle (sorry) the annual fireworks tradition in Fayetteville, this time on Dickson Street.

According to 40/29, the fledgling event will host their own fireworks display from atop the Walton Arts Center on Saturday, July 3.
