While you're planning out your holiday weekend, don't forget to check out the first ever Argenta Foodie Festival... which will be held between 6th and 7th Streets off Main in North Little Rock tomorrow from 9am to 2pm (whew, that's a mouthful!). 14 area chefs will be demonstrating and offering foods created from produce and meat from around these parts (most of which comes from within a 50 mile radius of Argenta, imagine that!). There will be plenty of family friendly entertainment, stuff for the kids to do, amusements, music (even a steel drum musician, cool!) and of course there will be a lot of food. The Farmers Market, from what I gather, will still be open (which makes perfect sense), and there will be arts and crafts. It's a good chance to take an opportunity to spend the day in Argenta; head over to one of the dozen or so local eateries in the Argenta district or check out artwork at the THEA Foundation. The festival itself is free, and if you're even the slightest bit concerned about parking you can ride the River Rail to get there. For more information, check out the website. And celebrate a responsible and happy Independence Day.
