All week the BP&R maintenance crew was testing every strand of lights in anticipation of the annual Lighting of the Square event that was held on Saturday, November 19.

Bentonville Mayor Stephanie Orman flipped the switch illuminating the Square.

Now it’s time to soak up the Christmas Spirit on the Square! It’s illuminated through New Years Eve.
