Bridge of Love set to return in May

The Bridge of Love returns to Eureka Springs this year from Friday, May 10, to Sunday, May 12 as families (local and tourists) come to downtown Eureka Springs to celebrate Mother’s Day Weekend. It is a heartwarming time on the Bridge, often mixed with tearful moments, as children, parents, grandparents, and friends tie flowers to the Bridge. Many place flowers in memory of loved ones, while others celebrate life and love, near and far.

As a part of the mont long May Festival of the Arts, the bridge will be in full bloom to “Feed The Soul.” This living floral art installation is being coordinated by Teresa Dickens Kolb of Eureka & Company Floral Designs, Ilene Powell and Sandy Royce Martin, as well as many citizens of Eureka Springs.

The flower decorating will begin at 10 a.m. Thursday, May 9. All are invited to “Come Tie One On.” This year the Bridge of Love is made possible by a grant from the Eureka Springs Arts Council.

Thanks also go out to John Cross for permitting the use of the pedestrian bridge for the Bridge of Love. We hope everyone can take some time to enjoy the Bridge of Love and share stories of the women in the their lives.
