A group of folks in Cotter led by a belief that a little joy can go a long way have put the town on the White River in lights this Christmas season — a whole bunch of lights.

Christmas in Cotter is a one-evening festival set for Saturday. Mayor George “Mac” Caradine says this is the second year for Christmas in Cotter at Big Spring Park.

But city officials, the fire department auxiliary, the Saturday Club and the Cotter-Gassville Chamber of Commerce extend an invitation to tour the lights all month long.
