Celebrate Independence Day 2021

Bella Vista, Northwest Arkansas

Saturday, July 3, 2021

The City of Bella Vista’s annual fireworks display will be held just after dark on Saturday, July 3 at the park below Loch Lomond dam on Glasgow Road.

The display is open to the public, and Bella Vista Police will be directing vehicles for parking starting at 5:30 p.m.

As always, those coming to the show and those living in the area should expect heavier traffic for the event, and more time should be allotted for travel. Parking is not allowed in the city streets rights-of-way, and drivers should obey all no parking signs in the area.

Fireworks Rules:

  • By city ordinance, fireworks are allowed to be set off from 6 p.m. to midnight July 3 through July 5 on private property with the property owner’s consent, if there is no active burn ban in the city.
  • No fireworks attached to a stick, such as bottle rockets, are allowed.
  • Use safety and common sense while discharging fireworks, be courteous and respectful to your neighbors and pick up all trash afterward.
  • Fireworks are allowed by state law to be sold in the city with proper city permitting from June 20 through July 11.

Staying in Bella Vista gave us more time.

Staying close to the fireworks gave my family more time to relax.

Lakeside Living

Pool your resources and you and nine friends could rent a sprawling five-bedroom, four-bath lake home a few bike miles away from the trail you came to challenge for way less cash. Spent the morning ripping gnarly challenges on the Back 40 in long sleeves and a face helmet? Cool off with a swim, keep on spinning with a kayak race. Loser buys the beer.

Rentals w/ Lake Access

Built Around Bikes

Traveling with your SO and looking for the promised romantic weekend and private getaway for the down time. You know you’ll all be stoked after the race and will want to celebrate. Restaurants jammed—you could use a hot shower—and a safe place to put your bike. Rent as many of the newly built trail front cabins designed for bicyclists—and their bikes—as the gang needs. Room close by for friends and privacy for the two of you.

The bike and sweaty gear disappear into custom bike storage not propped against the heater or piled up between the bed and the door. Nothing romantic about that look.

These eight brand new cabins were built right off the Back 40 where it connects to the Razorback Greenway.

Trail’s Edge Cabins

Great for Groups

Graceful comfort and views of wooded hills and lakeview sunsets of the Ozarks. Yours. Stay focused in your own space when that’s right. And when a day calls for camaraderie—hey your buds are just across the hall. Not even a compromise. A vacation you will want to do again. It’s a tradition-making Back 40 Weekend: who rides in Bella Vista stays in Bella Vista.

Rentals for Groups

Great for Families

A quick bike ride to the Back 40, amazing access to Lake Rayburn—a kayaker’s haven. And when ‘jfa’ (just fooling around) on the lake and hiking trails have worn out even the most sporting of kids, grilled burgers on the deck, three tvs w/cable, internet, hot shower, and a comfortable bed are a pretty strong antidote for the “I’m so bored” family vacation blues. Maybe even off to bed in time for some adult down time.

Rentals for Families

Great for Couples

Privacy and spectacular beauty in a romantic tree house retreat. Not literally, of course—although that might be available as well. This two-bedroom house in the middle of the Ozark Mountains delivers nature comfortably through a wall of floor to ceiling windows overlooking the forest or from a huge sun dappled deck under a canopy of trees.
