Lake Hamilton Memorial Day Fireworks Set Sunday, May 30;
Displays Also Planned for Independence Day and Labor Day
HOT SPRINGS NATIONAL PARK, Arkansas — The annual Memorial Day free fireworks display sponsored by Visit Hot Springs will be held Sunday, May 30 on Lake Hamilton.
In case of rain, the fireworks will be held Monday, May 31.
The Memorial Day fireworks will be the first of three fireworks displays Visit Hot Springs will sponsor this year. The second will be Sunday, July 4 (rain date Monday, July 5). The Labor Day fireworks display will be reinstated this year after a three-year hiatus. That display will be held Sunday, September 5 (rain date Monday, September 6).
“After a three-year interruption we are adding the Labor Day fireworks back to our schedule,” Visit Hot Springs CEO Steve Arrison said. “We had so many requests from the public for resumption of the Labor Day display that we decided it was time to resume that tradition.”
Arrison said, “The Memorial Day fireworks traditionally signal the beginning of the summer vacation season for Hot Springs.”
The fireworks will be shot at dark from barges in the middle of Lake Hamilton at the first Highway 7 bridge opposite the DoubleTree Hotel. Those who want to watch from the water are asked to keep a safe distance from the fireworks launching area and keep watch for fellow boaters.
The fireworks will be synchronized with music on radio station 97.5 FM US97 when fans watch the display.
