Hot Springs has no shortage of music festivals for all tastes: Valley of the Vapors hosts various punk-flavored acts from all over the world, The Hot Springs Music Festival offers a bounty for classical music lovers and the blues and jazz festivals - both coming up next month - draw big crowds.

The good folks at the nonprofit Low Key Arts are adding another feather to the Spa City's cap with the Hot Water Hills Music & Arts Festival, scheduled for Oct. 8-9 at Hill Wheatley Plaza downtown.

In addition to showcasing the work of a couple dozen visual artists, the festival includes performances from Big Smith, Ben Nichols of Lucero, Grand Marquis, Mountain Sprout and The Extraordinaires.

There will also be plenty of good old-fashioned family fun, with a pie-eating contest, dunking booth, egg tossing, a hay-bale pyramid and more. All for just $5 a day and free for kids 10 and younger. Food, beer and wine will be available.

The festivities kick off Friday, Oct. 7 at 3 p.m. and resume the next day at 11 a.m. The live music schedule is after the jump.
