Here is a look at what is happening in Northwest Arkansas sponsored by Canada Dry Ginger Ale.
Downtown Springdale is celebrating ‘Dia de los Muertos’ all this week. ‘Dia de los Muertos,’ or day of the dead, celebrates the lives of loved ones who came before us. This week, multiple events will take place to celebrate the holiday, from folklorico dancing to an exhibition on Shiloh Square to honor deceased loved ones. Organizers say events like these are a way to bring the Mexican heritage to NWA.
You still have time to register for Engage NWA’s Virtual Talk happening Thursday, November 4 at 6:00 p.m. Richard Rothstein, author of “The Color of Law,” will discuss public policies that segregated African Americans and created a racially separate residential pattern that exists to this day.
