Hot Springs, Ark. (Wednesday, June 12, 2013) – Oaklawn kicks off an exciting month with Spa Blast presented by Budweiser. Wednesday, July 3 in the infield. This year, the family-friendly event, which begins at 5:30 p.m., will conclude with a fireworks show that follows a free concert by legendary country singer Lee Greenwood.

The Grammy award-winning Greenwood, best known for his patriotic anthem “God Bless the USA,” will take to the stage at 8 p.m. Making the performance even more special is the fact that the show is being recorded for a Greatest Hits Live CD to be released later this year. Greenwood is allowing the fans to vote on which songs they want to hear by emailing liverecording@leegreenwood.com or by submitting requests through social media outlets.

In addition, Spa Blast presented by Budwesier will include a Kids Zone with inflatable rides, family friendly-priced concessions, Middleton Heat & Air Mist Tent and live music earlier in the evening by the up-and-coming local country group Downday. Guests are encouraged to park in the North Lot for easier access to the infield and may bring lawn chairs and blankets, but no coolers will be allowed. 

The Lee Greenwood concert will take place rain or shine. However, the fireworks will be moved to Friday, July 5 in the event of bad weather.

Every Thursday in July, Oaklawn brings the summer fun indoors with the $15,000 Beach Ball Bingo promotion from 6-10 p.m. Five winners will be called every 20 minutes and one lucky person will win $1,000 at the end of the night.

New in July, Lagniappe’s Restaurant will offer a Barbeque special where guests can choose ribs or chicken every Wednesday from 5 – 10 p.m. Every Friday from 5 – 10 p.m. it’s Steak Night where guests can enjoy the best steak in Hot Springs or if they prefer, the catch of the day.
