If your family is looking for a special, and visually stunning event to mark Mother's Day 2013, consider the "Illuminate the Cure: A Mother's Day Celebration" at the Big Dam Bridge on the Arkansas River this Sunday.
The bridge will be illuminated in special pink lights for the evening's festivities, and pink floating lanterns will be released into the river at 7:30 p.m. Lanterns can be purchased for $25 each beginning at 6:30 p.m. on the north and south side of the bridge, or by logging on to www.komenarkansas.org (while supplies last).
Each lantern purchased gives two people access to the bridge. Children under 5 are free.
Shuttles to the event will be available starting at 6 p.m. at Murray Park pavilions in Little Rock and Cook's Landing in North Little Rock.
In the event of inclement weather, the event will be rescheduled for Monday.
