Dogs are welcome to dance the night away too! Just as long as they are on a leash. Keep your eye out for watering areas throughout the district to keep those pups hydrated.

Vendors will be set up on Bridge Street selling all kinds of goodies including: jewelry, paintings, tye-dyes, crystals, and more!


Some of the best restaurants in Hot Springs will be set up in the district cooking up tasty specials for you to enjoy. AND rumor has it, there will even be sweet treats sold for those of you with a sweet tooth. Delish!


Restaurants will have beer, wine, and spirits for all your sippin' needs. No drinks allowed in or out of the district, so please leave your coolers at home.
