Heber Springs Celebrates Independence Day With Fireworks Extravaganza

The Heber Springs Area Chamber of Commerce announced today that this year’s Fireworks Extravaganza is scheduled for Tuesday, July 3 at Greers Ferry Lake. A much-beloved occasion with locals and tourists alike, the evening includes a full roster of events and entertainment for the entire family.


The 2018 Fireworks Extravaganza will be held at Sandy Beach on the shores of Greers Ferry Lake. Gates open at 10 a.m. for a fun filled day on the beach before the festivities begin.

Partygoers will arrive by boat and by car to enjoy food vendors opening by noon, and live music beginning at 7:30 p.m. with the 106th Army Band Charlie Rock.


At 9:30 p.m., one of the largest fireworks displays in Arkansas will light the skies above the lake, as thousands of breathtaking fireworks are choreographed to music broadcast on Timeless 106.1 FM, KFFB. Beautifully mirrored in the lake’s surface, the show is equally magical whether viewed by boat or on the shore, and each year’s Fireworks Extravaganza is better than the last.


It’s a quintessentially American tradition to spend this holiday celebrating on the water, and it’s hard to find a more beautiful, welcoming setting than Heber Springs and Greers Ferry Lake. Enjoy a day of boating, hiking or shopping and exploring the area, before joining the festive crew of holiday revelers to enjoy this local tradition.


The Fireworks Extravaganza is free, although there is a parking fee for those traveling by car. 2018 Fireworks Extravaganza is presented this year by Title Sponsors Sonic America’s Drive-In, Red River Dodge, Chrysler, Jeep, and the Heber Springs Area Chamber of Commerce. Other sponsors include the Heber Springs Advertising & Promotion Commission at the Premier Level, and Aromatique, Timeless 106.1 KFFB, HARPS Foods, Baptist Health Medical Center Heber Springs, Eagle Bank, XTO Energy, and Red River Boating at the Corporate Level.
