With stores all over the state and one in Memphis and one in Joplin, we get to experience a lot of fun outside of work. Our Central Arkansas locations in particular have a few fun upcoming events in their cities! North Little Rock, Jacksonville, Conway, and Bryant are all great cities with a lot to offer! Our Discount Auto Glass team wants to share a few ideas for some Central Arkansas outings with you! You won’t want to miss any of these.
North Little Rock – Patio on Park Hill
Patio on Park Hill is one of our favorite events. It’s an annual North Little Rock neighborhood festival that will take place 5 – 10 p.m., May 24 at the LakeHill Shopping Center on JFK Boulevard. There are lots of local vendors you can shop with, food trucks, and live music. There will also be a beer garden with acoustic music from local musicians. A few of our favorite acts coming this year are Jamie Lou and Hullabaloo, Ben Byers, The Wildflower Revue, Joe Darr, Dazz and Brie, and Brian Nahlen. Learn more about Patio on Park Hill.
Jacksonville – School’s Out Celebration
What better way to end the school year than a trip to Splash Zone Water Park in Jacksonville? Their School’s Out Celebration will take place 6 – 9 p.m. June 8. Be sure to grab your swim equipment, all the kids’ friends, and a few towels for this fun evening swim. We love it because of low admission cost ($5) and free slides! We could spend every day at Splash Zone during the summertime and this event will be fun for the whole family. Check out some more info about Splash Zone.
Conway – Toad Suck Daze
Toad Suck Daze in Conway is one of our favorite annual traditions. Always held in the first weekend of May, this year’s dates are May 4-6. It began on the banks of the Arkansas River in 1982 but moved to downtown about 25 years ago. Admission is free, and they always bring really great local and national musical acts. A few of our favorites this year are LANCO, Josh Hoyer & Soal Colassal, Marty Stuart and His Fabulous Superlatives, and Opal Agafia and the Sweet Nothings.
We would also suggest attending the Toad Races. Inside of the Toad Dome, the Toad Master for the Toady Woady hosts the races. It’s always a sight to see! There’s so much to see and do at Toad Suck Daze. Check it out for yourself!
Bryant – Taste of Bryant
This event, which usually occurs in August, is coming early this year! Occurring this year on May 31 at Bishop Park, you’ll want to get tickets to this eat-fest! This past year 30 local restaurants participated. The best part of that is the variety! We can go from pizza, to French fries, to fine dining food! Check out how to get tickets!
There’s plenty more to do in these areas than what’s listed here. Take a trip for yourself to find out! And, if your windshield catches a knick on your trip, Discount Auto Glass is here to help.
