— Riverfest, which dominates activities in central Arkansas each Memorial Day weekend, gets a full-dress preview in Thursday's Arkansas Weekend section.

Legend Willie Nelson, who celebrated his 76th birthday a few weeks ago and is "On the Road Again" all summer, will perform at 9:30 p.m. Friday on Riverfest's Bud Light Stage at Clinton Presidential Park.

The B-52s, rock's quirkiest enduring and endearing party band of Fred Schneider, Kate Pierson, Cindy Wilson and Keith Strickland will be teasing up their bouffants and bringing the "Good Stuff" to the Miller Lite Amphitheatre Stage in Little Rock at 9:30 p.m. Friday.

As for food, Riverfest's appetizer fare includes roasted corn, kettle corn, corn dogs. For a main course, there's pizza, Mexican, crawfish, barbecue, turkey legs, Cajun. For dessert, choices include funnel cakes, ice cream, candy apples. For all of the above, make sure your eyes don't get bigger than your stomach. And that your stomach doesn't get bigger than your nonrefundable RiverMoney.

While your pups aren't welcome at Riverfest (neither are things like coolers, weapons, skateboards, etc.), you can enjoy other people's at the Super Retriever Series Crown Championship, where four-legged athletes show off their jumping skills into a pool (not to mention splashing skills, so stand back). Events take place Saturday and Sunday on the North Little Rock side.

Read tomorrow's Arkansas Democrat-Gazette for full details.
