EUREKA SPRINGS, Ark. -

Eureka Springs will host the first mass same-sex wedding reception in the Bible Belt Saturday evening. Hundreds of guests from across the Midwest are expected to attend.

It is billed as a "Married To Equality" reception, the event will honor the more than 500 same sex couples who were married in Arkansas in May after a state judge invalidated the state's anti-gay marriage amendment, ruling it unconstitutional.  That ruling was later stayed by the Arkansas Supreme Court.

The reception is open to the public, scheduled for 5:30 to 7:30 at the Farm to Table Fresh restaurant in Eureka Springs.
