Fayetteville Celebrates Springfest

FAYETTEVILLE -- For more than 30 years, Northwest Arkansans have welcomed spring with none other than a celebration.
FAYETTEVILLE -- For more than 30 years, Northwest Arkansans have welcomed spring with none other than a celebration.

Between showcasing local music, a dog parade and the infamous bed races, all ages have something to look forward to.

"This is a Dickson Street tradition for many years, it took a hiatus a couple of years ago so we want to bring it back and feature the Dickson Street businesses, celebrate spring and get people out with their families to have some fun," Doug Allen, Springfest Director and owner of Jose's on Dickson Street said.

The proceeds for the event are benefiting Habitat for Humanity, specifically a house already under construction in Prairie Grove. See that project here.

"We have the money to get it off the ground and we just need a little more to get it finished so we're hoping that this takes a big chunk out of what we still need for that project," Michelle Davis, Resource Development Manager for Washington County Habitat for Humanity said.

After a day of celebrating spring, one of the largest Dickson Street Pub Crawls, with almost 30 bars, will launch at night.
