As the new year begins and winter continues onward, begin planning a getaway to enjoy Hot Springs AR. The Martin Luther King weekend is a perfect time to experience the joy of Spa City as the town celebrates a national hero.
The Oaklawn Race Track will have races going all weekend, including Monday, for those that are interested in seeing the exciting horse races. For this season only, the general admission fee is free, so be sure to make a trip to see the races and explore Oaklawn’s newly expanded construction.
There will be special events in town that weekend, including a parade on Jan. 19 to celebrate Martin Luther King. The parade begins at 10am downtown, followed by programs in Horner Hall in the Convention Center. You will not want to miss out on this commemorative parade.
And in true Hot Springs AR fashion, the Ohio Club bar will be celebrating its former patron Al Capone. Since it’s the famous gangster’s birthday, there will be live music and drink specials as well as costume contests. Get your best gangster outfit together and celebrate in style on Jan. 17 at 8pm. You might just learn more about famous gangsters and baseball players while you listen to some great music by the Ohio Club Players.
