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. Progressive families and individuals riding bicycles to the Riverfest event are encouraged to reach the FREE Bicycle Parking location at the North Little Rock City Services parking lot just 50 feet East of a Riverfest ticket entrance in Faucet Park at the Main St & Washington Avenue intersection.

From El Dorado to Sherwood, Fayetteville to Hot Springs, the president's approval rating is waning.
