For the second year in a row, Fayetteville has been named as one of the best college towns in the nation! Livability.com recently released its annual list of the Top 10 Best College Towns, which ranked Fayetteville as No. 4. The website, which provides data for small- and medium-sized cities, also compiles annual best-of lists based on the data it collects throughout the year. It lists Fayetteville with a population just shy of 76,000 and a median income of $37,383.

This is the fifth year Livability.com has published its best-of list for college towns. It’s Fayetteville’s second appearance on the list. The city was named No. 9 in 2013. Livability.com‘s ranking criteria included affordable housing, educational attainment, walkability and student population.

This year, cities were divided up by their college’s Football Bowl Subdivision conference and then ranked within each group before compiling the list. That means Fayetteville beat out all other SEC college towns, and was then ranked as the fourth-best in the nation.

It's almost that time of year again - before we know it the Downtown Fayetteville Square will be tranformed into a winter wonderland of dazzling lights! This year the annual Lights of the Ozarks Lighting Night parade will be held at 6 p.m. on FRIDAY, November 21, 2014. Traditionally, the lighting night parade is held on the Saturday before Thanksgiving, but because of the University of Arkansas Razorback Football game against Ole Miss on Saturday, November 22, the lighting night and parade have been moved to Friday, the night before.  Come early for the lights and stay late for the game!

Celebrating its 21st  year, the Lights of the Ozarks festival is the highlight of the holiday season in Fayetteville and is a featured stop on the state’s Arkansas Holiday Trail of Lights. The City of Fayetteville Parks and Recreation Department installs the lights over 6 weeks, a process that begins in October each year and takes over 3,000 man hours. Approximately 400,000 bulbs are hung and the lights are 100% LED.

The lighting night parade will begin at the Fayetteville Public Library and will head east on Mountain, north on East Avenue, west on Center Street, north on Block, west on Dickson Street and south on West, ending back at the library.
