May is Blooming with Culture

In Eureka Springs, the whole month of May is dedicated to the active role of the arts in our magical community. May 1-31 marks the 27th Annual Festival of the Arts, with events, openings, exhibitions, music and more throughout the month, held in a variety of special venues.  On May 3, Eurekans and many visitors will turn out for the annual Artrageous clown with multi-colored hair and red, blue, purple and white dress marching in paradeParade through the windy streets of our Historic Downtown. This fun and fanciful (some would say wacky!) parade kicks off art month in Eureka Springs

For those who love a great spectacle, The New Great Passion Play will begin the season’s run of performances on May 2. With an updated venue, a cast of several hundred actors, and live animals, this open-air  re-creation of the last days in the life of Jesus is sure to appeal to all age groups.

Car lovers, no matter what your favorite marque, will enjoy the cavalcade of PT Cruisers that comes to town for their annual PT Show and Parade (May 2-4). Even if you don’t own one of these Chrysler retros,  you’ll enjoy seeing so many of them in one place, all shined and tricked out to the nines.
