Free Riverfest parking

Posted By on Wed, May 21, 2008 at 8:35 AM

Not only is it free, but it is just steps away from a main entrance on the North Little Rock side of the river.

Yes, there's a catch. It's a lot set up for bike riders by Bicycle Advocacy of Central Arkansas. It's a move to encourage families to bike to the 'fest.

NEWS RELEASE

 Bicycle Advocacy of Central Arkansas (BACA) will offer the 1st FREE Parking opportunity for area cyclists during the Riverfest weekend Saturday, May 24 and Sunday May 25, 2008 beginning at the scheduled event start times.
