As if the opening of Benton's Riverside Park wasn't big enough, the city announced today that it will be adding a bit more icing to the cake.

Walt Coleman, professional NFL referee and former owner of Coleman Dairy in Little Rock, will be the guest speaker for the April 1 event.

Mayor David Mattingly said Monday that final scheduling for the grand opening is currently being decided and will be released in the coming weeks.
