HOT SPRINGS — The population of Hot Springs usually hovers around just a smidge under 600 until the second week in June, when residents of the small town are joined by hundreds of visitors in celebration of the communities’ pioneering spirit. 

Now in its 73rd year, Homesteaders Days has been a not-to-be-missed annual celebration that continues to attract locals and tourists alike with great food, music, crafts, and fun activities. 

The three-day event opened on Friday with live music. The festivities continued on Saturday with a car show, fun run, breakfast, rummage sale, kiddy parade, rodeo, and more music.

The party culminated on Sunday afternoon with a big parade on Main Street, followed by more rodeo events.
