Looking for an excuse to 'frock up' here in Eureka Springs check out the Barefoot Ball.
As a part of the Ozark Folk Festival, the annual Barefoot Ball will be brought back by popular demand.
Since its inception as part of the folk festival on June 23, 1948, the Barefoot Ball has had a long and rich, if not uninterrupted, history.
Doors open at 6 p.m. Nov. 5 for the 2010 edition of this festive, unpretentious dance. The 1905 Basin Park Hotel’s Barefoot Ballroom, named after the event, will once again be the venue.
Fayetteville’s Cletus Got Shot opens, and regional favorites Big Smith, from Springfield, Missouri, will headline the event. Tickets are $10. Despite the event’s name, shoes are optional.
