6 fun things to do this weekend: Jul 31-Aug 2

We go to all corners of the Ark-La-Tex to bring you this list of events :)

If you’re looking for fun things to do this weekend, we found a few across the Ark-La-Tex. We look for events that have a clear COVID-19 policy and/or for events outdoors for your safety. We hope you practice in face mask wearing and social distancing if you go to these events. Don’t forget, if you have an event coming up, add it to our calendar and you might be featured on the list one day.
