Northwest Arkansas Fun-To-Go Guide

NWA Businesses Offering Fun-To-Go Options During this Time

By Kimberly Hodoway, Asst Publisher of Macaroni Kid Rogers-Bentonville April 10, 2020

Usually, at this time of year, I would be publishing an updated Easter Egg Hunt and Events guide with lots of fun Easter activities for all of our subscribers. For the past several years, Macaroni Kid has also hosted the Razorback Egg Hunt in the Outfield event. We all enjoyed a Razorback ladies' softball game, followed by a massive egg hunt along with hundreds of other families. I'm sure I don't have to tell you that this year things are going to have to be a little different. OK...a LOT different! But if there's one thing we know how to do at Macaroni Kid, it's how to FIND YOUR FAMILY FUN...regardless of what is going on around us. In an effort to help all of our families who are staying in and social distancing during the coronavirus pandemic, this year I am sharing a new kind of guide. Our local businesses need our help. They, too, are having to do things differently in response to this crisis. The good news is it has meant a reimagining of how they can provide services to families that must stay at home. I have been so impressed with all of the new fun to-go options that are being offered and wanted to share them with all of you.

This guide is full of all the great things our local businesses are doing differently, too! Local businesses need our help and we need some stay-at-home fun, so this is a win-win!
