Oaklawn Concerts and Lookout Point Inn: A Great Duo!

May 17th, 2012 by Kristie Rosset

If there weren’t already plenty of fun things to do in Hot Springs, add to your list the five concerts coming to town presented by The Finish Line Concert Series at Oaklawn.

So, plan your Hot Springs vacation around one of the great concerts and, of course, make your reservations to stay our Hot Springs B&B!

The outstanding series includes a concert a month for five months:

  • June 7 The Oak Ridge Boys. OK, maybe they should be called the Oak Ridge Old Dudes.
    Oak Ridge Boys

    Boys? Really??

    But their four-part harmonies and upbeat songs have spawned dozens of Country hits and awards.

  • July 19 Diamond Rio performs their show-stopping country hits. They’ve sold more than 10 million albums, receiving Grammy and Country Music awards.
  • Aug. 23 Paul Revere and The Raiders

    Fashion style?

    come to Oaklawn with a style (do they still dress colonial?) and sixth sense for pleasing an audience.

  • Sept. 27 Larry Gatlin and the Gatlin Brothers take the stage representing a four-decade career from dusty Texas stages to the White House to Broadway.
  • Oct. 25 The Texas-bred band Lonestar finishes the concert series marking their 20th anniversary. The band is well known for merging their country roots with rich melodies and vocals.

Tickets for all the performances go on sale 10 days before each concert at 9 a.m. Call 501-623-4411 ext. 340 for reservations. Ticket prices start at only $19.95, and the theatre seats only 700–very intimate.

April 1st, 2012 by Kristie Rosset

One of the year’s biggest events, the Racing Festival of the South, brings tens of thousands race fans to Hot Springs.

Thoroughbreds at Oaklawn

Major races and special events happen through the week.  On Saturday mornings, Dawn at Oaklawn provides horse enthusiasts up-close and personal experience with the horses, trainers, and jockeys. It’s a time to see the horses in a stress-free, non-racing environment, when they’re way more playful!

For the Apple Blossom race on Friday, April 13, we’re awaiting official news of Havre de Grace, the current Horse of the Year, defending her crown. Apparently her owners will decide by April 7 if she will make another appearance at Oaklawn. What an opportunity to see an amazing horse!

On Saturday, don a hat and come to the Arkansas Derby. You’ll see top horses, have fun, and spend the day in a beautiful setting.

We’d love to welcome you to Lookout Point for the Racing Festival!

World’s Shortest St. Patrick’s Day Parade

February 19th, 2012 by Kristie Rosset

Hot Springs is becoming known as one of the great places to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day! On March 17, the hilarious “First Ever 9th Annual World’s Shortest St. Patrick’s Day Parade”

World's Shortest St. Patrick's Parade

is held on Bridge St., in the historic downtown. Really. This parade is only 98 feet long–the entire length of Bridge St.

Never a town that takes itself too seriously, this day is full of green celebration and green libation. Live, free concerts fill the air before and after the parade. You can also join in the kissing of the Blarney Stone.

This year’s grand marshal: Otter (Tim Matheson) from Animal House.

Come on and stay at our Hot Springs B&B—away from the crowds and noise, but close enough to the fun. We’ll provide tips on the best parking and viewing areas.
