Here is what is happening throughout the weekend of Friday, August 14 – Sunday, August 16 in Northwest Arkansas sponsored by Snapple Lemonade.
Grab your family and face coverings and head to the North Lawn at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art on Friday, August 14 for some dancing. “Friday Nights on the Lawn” are free, family-friendly events.
