By Kara Ault, Macaroni-Kid Fayetteville Publisher April 17, 2014

The calendar is packed this weekend with more Easter egg hunts and events! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. We will be going to my hometown of Greenwood for Easter lunch with my mom and a family egg hunt. No matter where you live in NWA, you should be able to find something to do this weekend. The Helicopter Egg Drop and Springfest are both in Fayetteville, Gravette is having a Renaissance Festival, War Eagle Mill is having an egg hunt & Easter festival and and Siloam Springs has an egg hunt, just to name a few. There are many more. You can find my entire list in the article here . Each one on the list has a direct link to the details of the event on the calendar.

As always, you can check out the full calendar here and use "Submit Event" to send me information on any upcoming family-friendly events that I may have missed.

One of the things I'm enjoying most about being a Macaroni Mom is being able to give away great prizes to readers. That's why I'm excited to announce that I have tickets to Touch-A-Truck to give away!  Two lucky subscribers will each win a family 4-pack of tickets to attend. Touch-A-Truck, sponsored by Junior League of NWA, is May 3 at Pinnacle Promenade and is a very popular event with NWA families every year. This event will feature dozens of vehicles that kids can explore, including construction equipment, safety vehicles, motorcycles, monster trucks, boats, tractors & even the Gazillion Bubble Car.  There will also be special appearances by local dance teams, Irish dancers, sports teams, mascots, costumed characters, fingernail painters, building projects, BB gun target practice and more family fun! Tickets are $5 each or $20 per family, but you can enter to WIN tickets from Macaroni Kid-Fayetteville here.
