Riverfest Goes Tobacco-Free
Riverfest patrons are officially being asked not to light up while jamming out to their favorite bands this weekend.
Riverfest officials say they've always worked to make the public aware of Little Rock's tobacco-free parks policy. This year, however, the requirement that Riverfest be officially tobacco-free was written into the lease. And Riverfest planners are working to make the public aware.
"The city of Little Rock maintained Riverfront Park as a smoke free venue and we do our best to comply with that and make sure that happens," said Riverfest Board Chair Rob Bell.
No smoking signs will be placed inside the venue area, and those seen smoking or using tobacco products may be asked to discard them. Riverfest also alerts patrons they could be asked to leave the park by city personnel.
