Patio on Park Hill, the annual North Little Rock neighborhood festival, is back and with extended hours. Put on by the Park Hill Business and Merchants Association, the fest will take place in the LakeHill Shopping Center on JFK Blvd. from 5-10 p.m. on Thursday, May 24.

For $3 (children ages 12 and under get in free), folks can shop from local vendors, grab food from food trucks and listen to live music. Thanks to this year's sponsors, Patio on Park Hill will have a larger stage than in the past. Pups are welcome, but must be licensed and leashed.

In addition to the main stage, there will also be a beer garden sponsored by North Bar with acoustic music from local musicians. Here's the music lineup:

  • 5 p.m. — Jamie Lou and Hullabaloo 
  • 5:15 p.m. — Ben Byers (beer garden)
  • 6:30 p.m. — The Wildflower Revue 
  • 6:45 p.m. — Joe Darr (beer garden)
  • 8 p.m. — Dazz and Brie
  • 8:15 p.m. — Brian Nahlen (beer garden)

Attendees can find free parking at Park Hill Baptist Church and Trinity Lutheran Church, and a free trolley will shuttle people to and from the parking lots 4:30 - 9:30 p.m. Designated handicapped parking will be available on a first-come, first-served basis in the Lakehill Shopping Center near the main entrance.

All proceeds go right back to the Park Hill Business and Merchants Association. For more information about Patio on Park Hill, join the Facebook event or visit the website.
