Antique Car Parade and Bank Robbery, Eureka Springs,AR

Warning, if you are planning to visit and shop in the historic district this September 8, 2012.Do not be alarmed if you find your self in the middle of a bank robbery.

Each year the city of Eureka Springs host the citys reenactment of the Bank Robbery of the Bank of Eureka Springs. As the story goes, the Henry Starr gang from Oklahoma plotted and camped the night before near Lake Leatherwood. The plan was to enter the Bank of Eureka Springs around 12:00 noon just as the town folks took a lunch break.  Well, the plan did go as planned.  The gang arrived at 11:00 am , with their watches set an hour behind,  I guess bank robbers are no too smart.

As the gang arrived and entered the banks with guns blazing, the citizens shot the tires of the getaway car and then several of the bank robber.  Oh well crime never does pay...........You can find other find events here in Eureka Springs by visiting calender of Events.

If you would like to see the reenactment this Saturaday at 12:00, then followed by the antique car parade.
