Allen talked about Downtown Bentonville’s First Friday, saying, “I am always excited to come back and play in Arkansas and excited to be a part of this event.”
The fun at the First Friday stage will include several high-flying shows by Flippenout Trampoline Shows and performances by DJ Girlfriend. Kris Allen will take the stage at 7:30 p.m. Feel free to bring outdoor chairs to enjoy the entertainment.
First Friday ‘Lunch Break’ continues this month, allowing folks to enjoy the food trucks around the square a little early— local food trucks will start serving lunch at 11 a.m.
