Fireworks from the Heber Springs Area Chamber of Commerce are slated for Saturday, July 5th

Independence Day is right around the corner and the area is gearing up for the annual fireworks display on Greers Ferry Lake.  This large annual event is put on by the Heber Springs Area Chamber of Commerce and is one of the largest fireworks displays in Arkansas.


On Saturday, July 5th, a celebration will be held at Sandy Beach in Heber Springs with entertainment for adults and kids alike.  Local favorite ‘Imagine That’ will be performing at the celebration starting at 5pm.  In addition to ‘Imagine That’, “CBS Grammy Gig of a Lifetime” winner Barrett Barber will also be performing beginning at 7pm.  Barber was selected for the TV show “American Idol” and also won the ‘Song of Arkansas’, which was hosted by Arkansas Department of Parks and Tourism.


The celebration at Sandy Beach will also include food vendors and a bounce house for the kids.


Fireworks are scheduled to begin at 9:30pm.  They will be choreographed to a musical piece that can be heard on local radio station KFFB 106.1.  Spectators will be able to see the display from miles around, with some of the best viewing available at Sandy Beach or in a boat on the lake.
