Each second weekend of August, Arkansas River Valley residents clean out the closets, garages, and sheds…others hook on their trailers and gas up their vehicles…and get ready for 160 miles of swappin’ and shoppin’ during Bargains Galore on 64!
From Fort Smith to Conway and then on to Beebe, US Highway 64 becomes a non-ending flea market of antiques, collectibles, clothes, unused items, and other junk…er, merchandise…for four days straight, Thursday through Saturday.
2011 will be the 12th year for this very popular and successful event. As we’ve said for years, if you plan to get anywhere fast in the area during the event, be sure to stay clear of Highway 64, as it will be slow going. Others who are looking for that special treasure will enjoy Bargains Galore on 64.
