Blytheville Gearing Up for 'Lights of the Delta'

NOVEMBER 11, 2004 - Posted at 4:30 p.m. CST

 

BLYTHEVILLE, AR - The Lights of the Delta festival in Blytheville is preparing to open next week with a show that includes more than six million lights.

The main display is at the Arkansas Aeroplex at the former air base near the city.  There are also downtown lights.  Organizers say the display is at the largest holiday light show in Arkansas.

The festival kicks off with a gala next Thursday.

Tickets for regular viewings are $10 per vehicle, more for buses.

Organizers will again have a souvenir stand, which will sell ornaments, sweatshirts, refreshments and books by northeast Arkansas native and author John Grisham, including signed copies of his novel, "A Painted House."
