The Navy has announced their 2007 "Calendar for America", and Central Arkansas is once again among the few sites selected.
This is the second year in a row that the Navy has selected Riverfest for a "Navy Week" event. The 2006 was VERY successful, which had a direct impact on the Navy's decision to include Arkansas in 2007.
The Navy chose only 25 cities for 2007. Many are large metropolitan areas, such as Dallas, TX and Chicago, IL, cities MANY times larger than the Central Arkansas area. Other events are directly related to the Navy, such as "Navy Week" in New England, or to the military, such as the many Air Shows selected.
For Riverfest 2007, most of the Navy-related events will all be near AIMM and USS Razorback.
Once again, we'll offer fireworks viewing from Razorback's deck on the last night of Riverfest. Razorback's deck is hands down the BEST place to watch the fireworks. We'll start taking reservations soon.
