You're invited to Thanksgiving in North Little Rock

There will be plenty to do in North Little Rock over Thanksgiving to appease all ages and interests. Don't feel like cooking on Thanksgiving? Riverfront Steakhouse will have their annual Thanksgiving feast on Thursday.

A Christmas Carol opens at Argenta Community Theater


 The third annual performance of Charles Dickens' holiday classic returns to Argenta Community Theater December 4 through December 14. The original stage adaptation by Arkansas playwright Judy B. Goss includes an all-new cast of local youth and adult actors who bring the story of Ebenezer Scrooge's redemption to the stage. Buy Tickets



Here comes Santa Claus!

Santa will be at McCain Mall starting Friday, November 15. He'll arrive by fire truck Friday at 6 p.m., with a breakfast the following morning in Center Court. When you finish your holiday shopping, have your gifts wrapped at the ALS in Wonderland booth on the upper level across from Zales Jewelers. Proceeds earned will benefit ALS and Simon Youth Foundation.


Home away from home

Only so many relatives can fit on the pull-out couch over the holidays. These hotels are a stone's throw from all of the holiday fun in North Little Rock. 

 (For a "Cousin Eddie" situation: Downtown Riverside RV Park is less than a mile from downtown. With a free dump station, just sayin'.)
