LITTLE ROCK, AR -- (Marketwired) -- 06/18/14 -- Fireworks are synonymous with 4th of July celebrations, which is why everyone is always looking for a great view without the crowds.

The festival-style celebration at this downtown Little Rock hotel includes private access to its Riverview Room and Terrace, offering grand views of the river and a front-row seat to the fireworks. Guests will enjoy a BBQ buffet dinner with a menu that includes a burger and hot dog grill station, BBQ chicken, chipotle street corn, watermelon, honey-mustard slaw, loaded potato salad and bananas and apples on sticks, covered with chocolate, caramel fondue and assorted toppings. Live entertainment will be provided by Arkansas's very own Tragikly White, an award-winning cover band covering rock and pop hits from across the decades.

The 33-acre park will host its own celebration, which guests can attend throughout the day. The complimentary 31st annual Pops on the River is a family-friendly event with food, fireworks and music from the Symphony Orchestra. The park party kicks off at noon with activities for the kids, a classic car show, marketplace, food trucks and live entertainment. Guests can stay outside for the fireworks show, which starts at 9:30pm, or head back to the hotel, where they can enjoy a great view -- minus the big crowds -- from the Riverview Room and Terrace.
