Wild River Country Cancels Country Music Night, Cites Threats


NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Wild River Country says threats are the reason it’s canceled a special event that was to be held this weekend.

A spokesperson for the water park declined to elaborate on what those threats were but did say they were serious enough for a planned country music adult night to be shut down.

The park posted the announcement to Facebook on Monday.

Multiple rumors circulated as to what the threats were. Some people online questioned if the threats were legitimate.

Just three years ago, multiple fights broke out at the park and led to the cancellation of future adult nights back in 2015.

Regarding canceling Country Music Night planned for this coming Saturday, a spokesperson for the park sent us a statement which reads in part:
“Country music is the most popular genre of music in the state. Unfortunately, we have received a number of threatening phone calls about this decision. Because employee and customer safety is our top priority, we canceled this and other planned adults-only events at this time. We will re-evaluate hosting such activities in 2019.”

A spokesperson for the park did tell us the park recently installed new lighting, in anticipation of hosting events like Country Music Night. As for now, future events remain uncertain.
