Riverfront in Little Rock, Arkansas will be the scene of antique and classic boats on display October 7, 2017, 10am-2pm
Come join us as Heartland Classics hosts a show of classic and antique boats on the Arkansas River in Little Rock, Arkansas. The Little Rock display is a one day only event to be held at the Arkansas Inland Maritime Museum, on the North Little Rock side of the river, directly across from the River Front District in downtown Little Rock. The Museum is only a short walk from the District, accessible via the Junction Bridge, a pedestrian and bicycle bridge.
The Little Rock display will be hosted on Saturday, October 7th, 2017 from 10:00 AM until 2:00 PM and will include some of the classic boats completing the 370 mile Arkansas River Odyssey that began on the previous Sunday in Muskogee, Oklahoma. Show participants will have the opportunity to cruise the Arkansas River on Saturday afternoon after the show and view the Little Rock skyline and riverfront area. For early arrivals, we have tentatively scheduled a Friday afternoon cruise which may include a lock through at Lock and Dam #7 (time permitting).
The show venue area will be at the docks of the Arkansas Inland Maritime Museum which is home port for the WW II submarine USS Razorback and the United States Navy vessel Hoga, the last floating Navy vessel that was present at the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. Show participants will have the opportunity to tour both of these unique Navy vessels as part of being in the display.
Click here for the Registration Form. This event will not have a registration cost but will have a registration form (coming soon) for planning purposes and for use in determining how much dock space is needed.
We will have more details coming concerning a ‘get together’ dinner on Friday night, when and where to launch boats, as well as recommendations for accommodations in Little Rock.
