Lights of the Delta Included in the Arkansas 'Trail of Lights'

November 25, 2005 - 12:16 p.m. CST

LITTLE ROCK (AP) _ Most of the holiday light displays in cities
around Arkansas were turned on by the beginning of this week, and
most will remain lit through December 27th. About 65 cities across
Arkansas have holiday lights displays.

The ``Lights of the Delta'' display in Blytheville features six
million lights between downtown and a 40-acre, drive-through spread
of lights. Little Rock lights up the state Capitol and the downtown
River Market District, and Hot Springs has lights on the Arlington
lawn at the foot of Bathhouse Row. The Spa City also will have an
outdoor ice skating rink this year.

In Conway, the display at the Faulkner County Courthouse will
include a lighted carrousel, and in Fayetteville, the ``Lights of
the Ozarks'' display illuminates the city's downtown square.
Texarkana will have its annual parade and tree lighting December
Fifth, and there will be nightly carriage rides.

The Arkansas Department of Parks and Tourism prints 150-thousand
brochures each year that point visitors to the displays in all
corners of the state. The brochures are available at welcome
centers, filling stations, chambers of commerce and city offices.
Information also is available on the Internet.
