For a few days every year during the annual bike-anallia nw Arkansas is ground zero for a two-wheeled invasion. Fortunately, it is just once a year and a lot of money is pumped into the economy of the entire area. And Eureka Springs in particular and Carroll County in general also benefited. This year Eureka was named as one of the official destinations of the event, which is centered around Dickson St. in Fayetteville. Over 400,000 riders were expected and a good share of them found their way through Carroll County. Here' what it looked like through the lens of CCN/Citizen photographer David Bell.
