The Bridge of Love returns to Eureka Springs this year Thursday, May 11 to Sunday, May 14, 2023 as families (local and tourists) come to Downtown Eureka Springs to celebrate Mother’s Day Weekend. It is a heartwarming time on the Bridge, often mixed with tearful moments, as children, parents, grandparents, and friends tie flowers to the Bridge. Many place flowers in memory of loved ones, while others celebrate life and love, near and far.
This year the Bridge of Love is sponsored by the Eureka Springs Preservation Society, Eureka Springs Arts Council, and Eureka & Company Floral Designs. As a part of the month long May Festival of the Arts, the Bridge will be in full bloom to “Feed The Soul”. This living floral art installation is being coordinated by the Krewe du Kork’s Ilene Powell, Sandy Royce Martin, Teresa Dickens Kolb of Eureka & Company Floral Designs, as well as many citizens of Eureka Springs. On Thursday, May 11th at 10:00am, the flower decorating will begin. All are invited to “Come Tie One On”.
Thanks also go out to John Cross for permitting the use of the pedestrian bridge for the Bridge of Love. We hope everyone can take some time to enjoy the Bridge of Love, share stories of the women in the their lives.
