Hot Springs Fireworks – 4th of July Celebration

June 17th, 2015 by Kristie Rosset

Different groups in Hot Springs take pride in providing fireworks 4th of July Celebration displays to celebrate the July 4th birthday of America. Independence Day is such a patriotic holiday. People all around are dressed in red, white and blue and most are waving flags. Pockets of celebration throughout Hot Springs enjoy cookouts with hot dogs with all the fixings, and make homemade ice cream. We’re pretty much a Norman Rockwell painting covered in patriotism.
To top off the American holiday, three major fireworks displays take place throughout the weekend. They are:
• Magic Springs and Crystal Falls plans to celebrate all month with fireworks each Friday night in July – the 3rd, 10th, 17th and 24th. The events will start about 8 to 8:30 p.m.
• Oaklawn Racing and Gaming hosts a Spa Blast beginning at 4 p.m. July 3 on the Infield at the Racetrack. The event is free and open to the public. It is family-friendly and includes a petting zoo for children. The fireworks start at dark.
• An impressive fireworks show takes place at dusk on July 4 across Highway 7 from the Super Duty Docks and Lift location directly across from the Clarion Hotel. This display is on Lake Hamilton and is a great celebration on the 4th. One of the best ways to see these fireworks is from the Belle of Hot Springs Riverboat on their fireworks cruise.
At the Inn we also celebrate the birthday of America during the July 4th weekend. We’re a wonderful place to stay for the holiday. Our comfortable beds and quiet rooms provide a nice place to return to after a fun day in the water, at Garvan Gardens, at Magic Springs or cruising Historic Downtown Hot Springs. Our breakfasts are delicious, the view of Lake Hamilton is stunning and the friendly Inn staff is a treat for our guests. Make reservations online or give us a call at 501.525.6155 and we’ll help you make plans for the July 4th weekend.

July 4th Fireworks in Hot Springs ARThe 4th of July is truly a celebration in Hot Springs AR, with firework displays lighting up the sky in various locations throughout the area. Magic Springs, for example, is illuminating the evening in celebration all month, as well as on the 4th.

Spa Blast at Oaklawn Racing Track always draws a large crowd. This year it will begin at 5:30pm on July 3. Spa Blast really focuses on creating a family-friendly environment, with inflatable rides and reasonably-priced concessions. There will also be live music from the country group Downday early in the evening. Typically the fireworks begin at dusk. You are welcome to bring lawn chairs and blankets for relaxing, but no coolers will be allowed.

Closer to Lookout Point, there will be a stunning exhibit over Lake Hamilton that weekend. All the details are still being lined up, but the same company presented the Memorial Day fireworks recently, and they were beautiful. (The photo above is from a display presented at the same location.)

While you are in town for the holiday, consider adding a stay at our Hot Springs luxury lodging. You can enjoy swimming in Lake Hamilton off of our lake wall, row the canoe in the tranquil waters, or listen to the sound of the waterfall in the garden before spending the evening surrounded by light displays. You can reserve your stay online or call 501.525.6155 for more information.

Fireworks over Lake Hamilton in Hot Springs

May 29th, 2012 by Kristie Rosset

A summer highlight for guests is viewing terrific fireworks

Fireworks over Lake Hamilton

over Lake Hamilton on the long holiday weekends (Memorial, July 4th, and Labor Day). This past weekend, Lookout Point Inn joined forces with other business leaders to sponsor the fireworks show.

Many of our guests enjoyed the show from the deck of The Belle Riverboat (they offer a fireworks cruise). She departs about 30 minutes before the fireworks begin, and provides an awesome view. Another great viewing option is from the outside dining area of J&S Italian Villa. But you’ll need to make reservations early!

Of course, we gladly make reservations for our guests at either location for viewing the fireworks. We invite you to stay at our lakeside Hot Springs B&B for a fun summer vacation!

Fireworks over Lake Hamilton explode on Sunday evening. I love to hear the resounding echoes of the fireworks, bouncing around the lake, off the docks, and the mountains! The best fireworks viewing is from either J&S Italian Villa (reserve early!) or the Bell Riverboat fireworks cruise.
