Fort Smith Now Officially Footloose on Sundays


FORT SMITH, Ark. (KNWA) — Fort Smith city directors repealed an ordinance, which means dancing is now legal on Sundays.

The ordinance — which forced dancing halls or any place that allowed dancing to be closed on Sundays — was signed back in November of 1953. 

Officials said no one has been arrested or ticketed for dancing on Sundays in the past 20 years.
