Lily Festival 2021

The Simple Pleasures drop-in Festival boasted free admission and ice cream…with plenty of activity for all ages. Car enthusiasts were invited to drive their classic “wheels” and show them off.   Kids of all ages enjoyed Tonka Town, Piston toss, corn hole, an old-fashioned merry-go-round, and teeter-totter.  Gardeners enjoyed fields of orange lilies, waterfalls, and creative landscaping.
Simple Pleasures partnered with Northwest Arkansas Children’s Shelter.
