The Hot Water Hills Music & Arts Festival is back for its second year. This time around, the festival will have two stages and nearly 20 bands. One of the stages — The Front Porch Stage — will be powered using solar energy panels.
Headliners include Dikki Du & The Zydeco Crew and Adam Faucett & The Tall Grass on Friday night, and Dirtfoot and Water Liars on Saturday night.
The festival is getting particularly artsy this year with its Cardboard City competition. Festival attendees are invited to participate by registering in teams of four. Each team will have four hours to bring all of their cardboard creations to life, with a shot at a $400 first-place prize a $100 prize for second place. Arkansans might not get too many chances to compete in snowman-building competitions, but cardboard cities are definitely something we can master. Space in the competition is limited to 10 teams. More information is available here.
In addition to the music and contest, the festival offerings include beer, wine, soft drinks, food and a wealth of family-friendly activities.
