Friday-Sunday, Sept. 8-10, 2017: Love the Lake & River WEEKEND!

For nearly 50 years, the Greers Ferry Lake & Little Red River Association has sponsored a Lake & River Cleanup Event. This family-friendly, community activity has mobilized hundreds of volunteer individuals, church & school groups, and civic organizations to rally together to keep the treasured shores and waterways beautiful. This year, in celebration of our 47th anniversary, the event is even BIGGER and BETTER! We invite locals & visitors alike to spend time exploring the trails, marinas, parks, shops, restaurants, and attractions of the towns in the lake region. Water is the life of our communities – what better way than to spend an entire weekend fostering a love for our natural & local resources of Arkansas’ Adventure Region?
