Northwest Arkansas has something to offer everyone in May, with local events ranging from a Construction Bash and Touch-a-Truck festival, to the always elegant Heart Ball and the Taste of Opera season opener.
It was a perfect ladies luncheon on Wednesday (April 23) afternoon, as more than 100 women gathered for the second annual Divas, Diamonds and Decadence event at the Fianna Hills Country Club in Fort Smith.
April is shaping up to be a colorful month. Folks in the Fort Smith Region can get their greens at the Alma Spinach Festival, search for eggs of every color at the Mayor's Easter Egg Hunt, lunch and learn at Reveal the Teal, enjoy some blues at Music on Main Street, and much more.
People arrived at the Walton Arts Center ready for a dose of homegrown Arkansas country music; cowboy boots and Western wear were in vogue for the 21st annual Washington Regional Medical Foundation Gala and Eagle Awards fundraiser Tuesday eve
In addition to stormy weather, April will kick-off with Wine and Roses' 20th anniversary, the Fort Smith Chorale's "Of Love and War," the Kids and the Community Golf Tournament, Miles for Mutts, and Chaffee Crossing's Spring Festival. Good luck working it all in.
April is off to a busy start in Northwest Arkansas, as the region is set to host "Viva la Musica!," the Bentonville Running Festival, the Washington Regional Gala, "Wig Out!," and the annual Sunshine Gala in the coming weeks.
