SPRINGDALE, Ark. (AP) - Officials say Arvest Ballpark will serve as a venue for the upcoming Bikes Blues and BBQ rally this fall.

Springdale officials announced Monday that the ballpark will host a car show, vintage motorcycle show, live music and more during the festival, which is set for Sept. 26-27. City officials credit the completion of the $23 million Don Tyson Parkway interchange as key in landing the event.

The interchange opens up another route into Springdale off Interstate 49 in northwest Arkansas.

The annual event draws tens of thousands of people to northwest Arkansas every fall.
