BENTONVILLE, Ark. —
Bentonville Bike Fest kicks off Friday and features an action packed weekend of cycling in Bentonville. From professional riders, to competitions, to demos, there is a loaded schedule of activities for bike enthusiasts. The president of Visit Bentonville expects thousands to come to the festival.
"It will probably have between a $200,000 to $300,000 impact and that is a direct economic impact. That is staying in hotels, eating in our restaurants, filling up with gas, so we are going to see a huge impact in our community over the weekend," said Kalene Griffith, president and CEO of Visit Bentonville.
