Happy Sunday evening, guys! We’re bringing you into the week with our picks for the top Arkansas weekly events. Here’s the rundown..
HOLIDAY LIGHTS AND SOUNDS – THE PROMENADE – LITTLE ROCK – FREE
The Promenade gets festive bringing your family a tree that even Clark Griswold would love. This animated tree, and it’s a real as Santa, is set to a synchronized light show that repeats every hour on the hour. Show runs from 5pm-10pm, nightly, until Dec 29th. So gents, while you’re holding your wife’s purse, take the kids down to the tree.
Pro Tip: Shut down her credit card for a couple of hours via the endless apps. See how that plays out.
HOMETOWN HOLIDAYS AT THE LITTLE ROCK ZOO
December 6TH AND 7TH ONLY. $4O/Adults, $35/Children **MUST BUY IN ADVANCE

CHRISTMAS MARKET AT HEIFER VILLAGE
Saturday, December 7th, 4pm-9pm, FREE
Our friends at the Heifer Village, who are philanthropists for the world, are bridging the gap from across the pond with an outdoor European market geared at all things Christmas. Here you’ll find fair trade items from across the world. Many items are hand made, and if you’re truly looking for a unique gift for your significant other, this may be your spot. Gifts available from local artists and vendors, as well. Light food and drink options available (rum in my Russian tea? YES PLEASE!), so high-five Heifer Village.

They’re an amazing organization and the world needs more of them.
DAVE CHAPELLE – ROBINSON CENTER – LITTLE ROCK
Friday, December 6th 7pm
Our generation’s Richard Prior. Maybe better. Chapelle brings his comedic mastermind to Little Rock. We’re super upset we don’t have a babysitter and didn’t get tickets in time. Truly a legend and worth whatever they are charging. The show is SOLD OUT. But.. stubhub will have some scalped tickets.
EUREKA SPRINGS CHRISTMAS PARADE OF LIGHTS
Friday, December 6th 7pm
We’re all about some Eureka Springs. Their parades through Spring street are, well, FABULOUS. The town is as close as you’re going to get to a Hallmark Christmas card in Arkansas. The parade is fun and the whole town shows up. Also, Santa is at Basin Park from 1-3pm on Saturday. These guys make a weekend of EVERYTHING and never disappoint. No snow in the forecast, but if there were, that’s the only way this could be any more magical.
